isxblue-ii-gnss-512x384Yes. After establishing Bluetooth connection, select iSXBlue or GNSS Receiver as the device and com.geneq.sxbluegpssource as the protocol. Then iCMTGIS PRO can receive and parse the NMEA message stream from the GNSS receiver and display information about the GPS status.

For RTK GPS surveying, you can run the iSXBlue RTN NTRIP client app to connect to the RTK network. (link to

Wetland & Stakeout updated

The Wetland & Stakeout app has been updated to version 1.0.2.

This update fixes a crash problem that occurs when user taps rapidly in a drop-down list. Some users enter data intensively into a spread-sheet component and want to be able to quickly get back to the spreadsheet. Now the app will let them so do. It will also bring up the last data field accessed in the spreadsheet. If you have tapped the “Hide report form” status for a given form, the updated app will remember that.

This app differs from our other GPS/GIS apps in that it provides the user the ability to set up a custom data entry form to collect data at a particular location. The spreadsheet component can be used to advantage for recording data for diverse applications. The built-in wetland delineation data forms contain a number of spreadsheet components. In a similar way you could incorporate a spreadsheet to record observation data for fishery management, tree harvest audit, equipment rental, you name it, and put in some logic to produce the needed report form with the result of the analysis. It does take some efforts to set up the form initially, but once completed, the form can be used over and over again or easily modified.

iCMTGIS PRO updated to 1.0.2

This release of iCMTGIS PRO (version 1.0.2) fixes a few user-reported issues.

1. GPS input datum epoch was misinterpreted.
2. The HAE/MSL setting will now be saved instead of always defaulting to MSL.
3. Elevations will now display with 3 decimal digits.
4. Antenna Height under GPS Setup will be properly applied to GPS data.

iCMTGIS III updated to version 1.1.5

The changes in this update are:
1. Allow GPS data collection to continue in the background when user presses the Home button or when screen is locked.
2. Display same elevation data in Feature Properties screen and the pop-up in Map View.

iCMTGIS III updated to 1.1.4

iCMTGIS III version 1.1.4 is now available for download at the Apple App Store.

This update fixes a problem that causes the app to crash when the user taps on the drop-down arrow for a list-type data field then quickly taps on the data field itself before the drop-down list is fully displayed.

iCMTGIS III updated to version 1.1.3

The following enhancements have been added to iCMTGIS III version 1.1.3:
1. Added the Undo function for “Add Point Manually” in iPad mode.
2. Added the Sort icon for Sheet View in iPad mode.
3. For “Import Text File” on the Topic menu, we have added the ability to let you select a commonly used date format. The date value in the text file will not be imported if it is inconsistent with the specified format.
4. Added the ability to automatically save newly added Features. It is advisable to use the Job\Save function to save the other Job data from time to time.

Tutorial for using Deed Calls Pro to enter multiple deeds in the same job file

MDC23“I’ve been researching Deed Call Pro for the ability to be able to plot multiple deeds on the same job and even after looking over the help file I can’t see it. This seems to be a problem that others have encountered and I have seen one answer that may make me understand it when looking thru the menu and sub menus but right now I can’t do that. I will purchase the app as it seems to be the best option in the end. It would be helpful if there were video tutorials or slide show with circles and arrows.”

Here you go – “How to Draw Multiple Deeds Using Deed Calls Pro

P.S. Even before we posted the video, same user reported, “I’m rocking it.  . . . Pretty painless once I decided to fork over the cash.”

The Create Deed Calls function in Farming GPS GIS II/III and Forester GPS GIS II/III work in the same way.
