We are pleased to announce that ArcPad 10.2.1 is available to download via the Esri Customer Care Portal. The ArcPad 10.2.1 update addresses some important usability and feature enhancements that improves the utility and stability of ArcPad. Here are some highlights:
Support for Bing Maps Key
ArcPad 10.2.1 allows users to enter their own Bing Maps Key in the server options dialog. This is important for users who want to continue to use Bing Maps as a basemap in ArcPad. See this blog post of more information about continued use of Bing Maps with Esri products.
Rangefinders and linear traversing
The tools for working with external rangefinders has been enhanced and the linear traverse workflow now gives consistent results when capturing polylines or polygons. See the Linear Traverse Help.
Synchronization with feature services
Last year ArcPad 10.2 introduced the ability to edit feature services hosted on ArcGIS Online or ArcGIS Server in a connected or disconnected environment. ArcPad 10.2.1 improves the reliability of feature service synchronization and the stability of symbols and forms. Also, feature services originating from ArcGIS for Server 10.0 are now supported. Give feature service synchronization a try!
Geodatabase Geometry Types
ArcPad 10.2.1 has better support for Geodatabase geometry types. So if you are using an Enterprise or Workgroup Geodatabase with ArcPad you can take your data into the field and synchronize your data back to the Geodatabase just as you would with a file based data source.
