How do I import same Feature List for iCMTGIS PRO app on both iPhone and iPad?

If you are running iOS 11 or later on your devices, you could use the Files app on your device to manage your files.

Suppose you have created a Feature List on your iPad device. You could email that Feature List to yourself.

When you open the email on the iPhone device, tap on the file then select the Files app icon. Now select the iCMTGIS PRO folder and tap the Add button to add the file to your iCMTGIS PRO app on the iPhone.

The same user who asked this question also asked whether there is a PC program that he could use to prepare a Feature List. We told him that he could use PC-GIS X to do so.

Do the CMT GPS GIS apps function differently on iPhone versus iPad?

Because of the difference in screen size, the layout (location of the functions) are different in a number of places for the iPad and iPhone versions of a universal app. The iPad version can work in landscape and portrait mode. The iPhone version only works in portrait mode. For some apps there may be one or two sub-functions that the iPhone version does not support.

Have a happy and productive 2019!

Importing DXF to ArcMap

“When I export to dxf the file has no position data with it so I can’t add it to my projected ArcMAP GIS file. What do I need to do to get the dxf in a format that can be added to ArcMAP?”

We informed the user that DXF Export does output the position data of the exported Features.

Later, the user resolved the issue himself:
“I bet this is an ArcMAP or Windows update issue because I never had to do this before. I had to edit the file’s properties in ArcMAP and set the coordinate system as WGS_1984_(G1150). Everything drops in as it should.”

Project boundary shifts when I turn on my Arrow 100 GNSS

“I am having an issue with my Wetland Stakeout App that I believe I ran into in the past and figured out but this time I am unable to figure it out. I set up a project and imported a shapefile of a project area boundary in WGS 1984. Before leaving the desk/office I can see the project area boundary is accurate on the air photograph. When in the field and I turn the APP on everything looks correct but as soon as I turn my Arrow 100 GNSS Receiver on the project area boundary shifts about 30-40 feet to the south and my position is shown offset by the same distance.”

A shift of that magnitude is likely due to using the wrong coordinate system or distance unit.

It appears you have selected the correct datum, coordinate system and distance unit for importing the Shapefiles.

The SBAS data sent out by the Arrow 100 uses ITRF08 datum and meters distance unit. Please switch to Meters for distance unit in the Wetland & Stakeout app before turning the Arrow 100 on.

 

Just purchased today with my iPhone. Would like to put on my iPad as well. How to do that?

Many of our apps can be used on iPad and iPhone devices, a few are for iPad devices only, and iGPSGIS II is for use on iPhone devices.

Per information provided by Apple, if you use the same Apple ID on your iPad as your iPhone, you should be able to download the app that you have purchased onto your iPad as well, if you enable Family Sharing.

I want to know how many devices can be used with the same account

According to Apple, “You can have ten devices (no more than five of them computers) associated with your Apple ID and iTunes at one time.”

OK to upgrade to iOS 12.0?

“I just bought the IcmtGis Pro software today and I did install it on my Iphone 6s. I created new jobs and stored some points in it. When using the e-mail file functionality, I see only default jobs that were in the system but I do not see my newly created jobs. . . . I am running IOS 11.4.1 ready to upgrade to 12.0 but I did not want to screw things even more with the upgrade to 12.0 … Any suggestion on the fact that I should upgrade to 12.0 or I should not?”

It’s likely that you have the app set up to store data to iCloud. Please read the article at the following link.

It is all right to upgrade to iOS 12.
