Field-Based Solutions Combine AutoCAD Compatible Mobile Design Software With GPS Viewing And Navigation On New Recon Ruggedized Pocket PC.

GiveMePower and Tripod Data Systems, a Trimble Company and leading provider of field-based computing solutions for surveying, construction, GIS/GPS, utilities, military and public safety applications, announced an agreement to offer specially bundled mobile CAD and GPS solutions for a wide range of customers who require the ability to remotely manage AutoCAD® compatible designs and digital blueprints in harsh outdoor and industrial environments.

Starting at $1,579, three new bundles combine the military-grade ruggedness of TDS’s new Recon Pocket PC with the full-featured 2D/3D computer-aided design (CAD) capabilities of GiveMePower’s PowerCAD CE software and the GPS location and navigation capabilities of TDS’s new SoloView software.

“Bundling PowerCAD on the Recon gives customers the ability to remotely view and edit their CAD designs and digital blueprints under any imaginable working conditions,” said Roy Scribner, Marketing Manager for TDS. “Adding SoloView extends the power of CAD to include location and navigation capabilities using any of today’s most popular GPS receivers.”

PowerCAD CE helps companies save time, improve customer service and increase profits by being able to view, markup, and create 2 and 3-dimensional designs and digital blueprints directly in the field or on the shop floor. With up to 300 commands and support for AutoCAD file formats, PowerCAD CE can serve as a completely independent mobile CAD station, or as a collaborative mobile extension for leading desktop CAD systems such as AutoCAD, MicroStation and GiveMePower’s own PowerCAD software line for Windows 9x/NT/2000/XP computing.

The PowerCAD/Recon mobile computing bundles being offered feature Microsoft’s Windows CE .NET 4.1 operating system, which allows users to view popular desktop documents-such as Adobe Acrobat® software, Microsoft Word, PowerPoint and Excel software programs-in their original formats, without having to convert them to a "pocket" version that loses much of the desktop formatting.

Recon/PowerCAD bundles are available for immediate purchase by calling 1-888-97-POWER, or by visiting GiveMePower’s website at http://www.givemepower.com/partners/tds/.
