Do I need cellular data for the app to work?

We received this question regarding the Deed Calls & Stakeout app, but the answer applies to our other apps as well.

The GPS data collection functions and most of the other functions will work without wi-fi and cellular data.

Some of our apps, like Forester GPS GIS III, Farming GPS GIS III, iCMTGIS III and iCMTGIS PRO will let you load a geo-referenced *.tif map and use it off-line.

Most of our apps provide a Map function to get and display the Map from Apple via wi-fi connection. However, you can cache the Map to use out there where no wi-fi is available. This means that you can call up the Map and display the area in which you will be working, turn off wi-fi then go out in the field. You will be able to view the Map while working with your app. As long as you do not play with the Map function while you are out there (such as switching from Show Satellite to Show Hybrid) or close Map, the background map should remain available.

Map not showing up in iCMTGIS PRO on iPhone 7 (iOS 10.3.3)

“I purchased the iCMTGIS PRO program about a year ago and have used it since then and like it and now I cant get a map to display I have good internet access when I go to Menu, map, and select show satellite or hybrid it just shows a gray background? Any idea how to fix this? If I close map the background goes to white. I have Version 1.0.6. I have tried closing the program , rebooting the iPhone etc. and cant figure it out? My job points show up but no map?”

Support: Please try using the Maps app on your iPhone. Does it have the same issue?

User: Google maps works but the other map won’t show.

Support: By “the other map” do you mean the Maps Apple app? Yeah, sometimes there is a problem with the Apple Maps server. However, it is working at our location in Oregon. Please try again tomorrow and see if the issue has been resolved.

User: Ok now it works I updated to iOS 11 and now it works – not sure if that did it or it just came back online

Support: Apple Maps must have come back online. The Map function in our apps is based on the Apple Map.

If you have a Geo-Tiff image for your job site, you could load it into the iCMTGIS PRO app as a Background Map. Background Maps work off-line.
