MobileDataforce introduces GPS support for electronic forms on Palm OS
Posted on 15-Apr-2004 18:04 | Tags Filed under: News



MobileDataforce announced the implementation of GPS support within forms created by the Intercue Mobility Suite version 4.0. The GPS support enables engineers to capture GPS coordinates inside Palm forms.

"Engineers, inspectors, construction teams, architects and other field workers can now capture precise GPS coordinates inside their electronic forms on Palm devices," said Kevin Benedict, chief operating officer of MobileDataforce. "This solution not only enables you to input your field data into a handheld computer that can be integrated with your databases, but also interfaces with your GPS system to identify the location of your work. The GPS coordinates include latitude, longitude and altitude and can be inserted into your form with the push of a button. This is another example of how collecting data on handheld computers is a giant improvement over using traditional paper forms."

The successful implementation was completed using MobileDataforce's Intercue Mobility Suite version 4.0, and Garmin iQue 3600 handhelds with Palm OS 5.0. "Later this Quarter MobileDataforce expects to deliver GPS integration for the Pocket PC platform as well," said Dave Wasden, vice president of product management for MobileDataforce.

The Intercue Mobility Suite is also available for Windows Mobile Pocket PC.

"The GPS interface with the Intercue Mobility Suite provides my clients with the ability to collect data using an electronic form on a handheld Palm device, and document the location of the work using the GPS coordinates," said Scott Denton, owner of Denton Software Solutions. "This is an invaluable feature for my clients who often work in mobile and rural environments."
