"Surveyors are always looking for great value," says Darcy Detlor, president of MicroSurvey. "The new FieldGenius ValuePack really compares well feature-for-feature against any other data collection package out there, plus it's much cheaper than a Recon with similar processing power."

MicroSurvey recommends surveyors run the ValuePack's FieldGenius XG 2.0 program on the new HP 2215 Pocket PC which is the most powerful data collector for its price on the market. The HP 2215 comes with field-replaceable Li-ion battery, 400 MHz XScale, 64 MB internal memory, and brilliant color screen for the low price of $399.
