In addition to the GPS unit, you will need mapping software to log and organize data you wish to collect. We at STAKEMILL like to compare the MobileMapper and its software packages to your typical desktop computer and wordprocessing software.
Just like your Desktop, the MobileMapper is also a computer. It comes with Windows Mobile operating system just like your Desktop comes with a Windows XP or WIndows 7 operating system. This software operates the the hardward and allows you to run other applications such as a mapping software.
On your Desktop, if you want to write a document you will need a wordprocessing program. On your Handheld MobileMapper, if you want to collect points you need a mapping program.
Also, just like wordprocessing software applications, mapping software applications come with different levels of features. Other posts on this blog will briefly outline these mapping applications.
