Prosurv LLC Releases Pocket Quads 2006 for Windows Mobile 5 Devices

Pocket Quads 2006 is software for the Pocket PC that gives the user real-time GPS positioning on digital topo maps on his/her Pocket PC, and offers the most advanced auto map-loading capabilities in the industry. Pocket Quads auto-loads, auto-centers, and auto-tracks topo maps, in real time, based on the current GPS position (GPS receiver not included). Rather than downloading portions of maps from a PC, or a narrow route from point A to point B, Pocket Quads allows the user to store hundreds of FULL SIZE digital topo maps on a single Flash (CF or SD) Card, and loads them automatically, as needed. Pocket Quads is the perfect GPS Topo Map solution for hiking, geo-cacheing, rock hounding, reconnaissance, search and rescue, fire suppression, surveying, and GPS data collection.

Pocket Quads 2006 now supports the next generation of Microsoft Windows Mobile Devices and the Windows Mobile 5 Operating System. VGA capable devices, such as the Dell Axim X51v are automatically supported. VGA devices display 4 times the map area on the same 240x320 screen in high resolution. Pocket Quads 2006 for Windows Mobile 5 Devices leverages the advanced database management capabilities now available in Windows Mobile 5 devices and contains all of the features found in Pocket Quads Version 1.7. Pocket Quads 2006 also supports the ultra-rugged Archer by Juniper Systems and is available as a complete hardware and software solution.

Pocket Quads software allows the user to switch between the 1:24,000, 1:100,000, and 1:250,000 scale maps "on the fly". The software also offers pan, zoom, import, export, and storing of points, annotations, and lines to a job file, and point navigation (stakeout). In addition, Pocket Quads can record GPS points by time or distance, and has a unique Playback feature which plays back your recorded points in real time. Features include auto-sensing of comm port and baud rate, Lat/Long and Coordinate display, Satellite display, Distance and Mid-Point functions, Annotations, Line creation, and viewing of recorded data. Pocket Quads supports all NAD83 State Plane and UTM Coordinate zones. Pocket Quads also allows users to search for features using State-specific GNIS databases (available free of charge), by Feature Name, such as Persimmon Gap, Old Faithful, or Lost Mine. Tap the Load button and the Topo Map containing that feature is automatically loaded and displayed. Radial searches by Feature Type are also supported, such as all of the "Falls" within 5 miles of a tapped point or your current GPS position.

A User's Guide and a Quick Start Guide are available for download at the web site. Questions can be sent to, or call Toll-free 888-647-9500.

Prosurv LLC manufactures and distributes cutting-edge software for Surveyors and the GIS industry. Other software by Prosurv LLC include Pocket Quads Yellowstone National Park Edition, Prosurv cEZ.NET, Prosurv Imaging, and Prosurv Pocket WorldCon.
