ArcPad 8 Bootcamp is back... October 22-23 in Seattle!

Our ArcPad 8 Bootcamp at the ESRI User Conference was very successful - many thanks to those of you who attended and assisted!

Based on lots of feedback, we've expanded the Bootcamp to 2-days with more hands-on PC exercises.

We've also teamed up with the King County GIS Center to offer the ArcPad 8 Bootcamp at their convenient, state-of-the-art Seattle training facility.

We're pleased to offer the next class in Seattle, WA on October 22-23, 2009.

    Arcpad 8 has poor performance on most pocket pc's and the toolbar buttons suck. Ther is still GPS lag time in your real world position. What can we do about this? This wasn't origionally built to be a tablet pc app.?

    ArcPads performance is very much dependant on the combination of data, device, type and size (of both). if you have a specific project you would like help with please post your question to the arcpad fourm at
