ArcPad 10.0.4 Now Available

We are pleased to announce that ArcPad 10.0.4 is now available!  This version of ArcPad is primarily a maintenance release which resolves the following issues:

  • * Typo errors on the StreetMap Data Activation box;
  • * Non-English AXF file and field names are no longer corrupted when displayed in ArcGIS desktop.  (Note: This fix requires FME Desktop 2012 SP1 – more information here:;
  • * Synchronization issues when using the ArcGIS Server ArcPad Extension to update field and office edits.

Additionally, ArcPad now supports the $GPGST NMEA sentence which means you will be able to see additional measures of the GPS signal quality in the GPS Position Window > Quality tab.
