Does the Trimble® GPScorrect™ extension for Esri ArcPad software (v3.13, 3.10, 3.02) work with ArcPad 10 release?
The current release of Trimble® GPScorrect™ does not work with ArcPad 10.
Trimble® is working on a new version of Trimble® GPScorrect™ for ArcPad 10 and a new version of Trimble® GPS Analyst™ for ArcGIS 10. Esri is working with Trimble to continue to support customers who post-process their GPS data using Esri and Trimble® applications.
Customers who have purchased ArcPad 10 with a Trimble® device and need to post-process their data with GPScorrect™ can download ArcPad 8.0. ArcPad 8.0 is supported with GPScorrect v2.42 and later.
Contact Esri’s Customer Service to obtain a valid ArcPad 8.0 registration code.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.

Hello, my name is Denise, and I am the Mobile GIS Support Specialist in ESRI Support Services, working out of the East Coast – Charlotte office. Many of you contacting ESRI Support Services for help or information of a technical nature are already aware of the GoToAssist utility. The GoToAssist utility allows ESRI Support Analysts to provide what is commonly referred to as ‘desktop streaming’. We blogged on this topic back in April 2009 to help inform ESRI’s user community on how GoToAssist allows our support analysts to remotely and securely connect to our customers’ computers: allowing for faster, more accurate diagnosis of many kinds of problems – especially when the problem involves a map.
The GoToAssist application works great for those using desktop, laptop, and tablet PCs, but what about the popular and ever growing mobile device world? The current Mobile GIS technologies offered by ESRI are ArcPad, ArcGIS Mobile, and ArcLogistics Navigator. All three software applications run as WIN32 applications in addition to Windows Mobile applications. GoToAssist is ideal if the issue you are reporting is occurring on a desktop, laptop, or tablet PC; however, it is more common in the Mobile GIS world to get contacted by mobile users reporting the experienced behavior that is only occurring on the mobile device. This is where GoToAssist gets assistance from a utility called My Mobiler.
My Mobiler is a freeware application that provides ESRI Support Analysts the ability to view and/or control the processes performed on a connected mobile device from a desktop PC. Used in conjunction with GoToAssist, ESRI Support Analysts can troubleshoot and diagnose reported behaviors on a mobile device, visually confirm that mobile device users are performing the proper instructions in their work flow procedures, and assist in any user training of ESRI software mobile applications (ArcPad, ArcGIS Mobile, and ArcLogistics Navigator).
Disclaimer: My Mobiler is a free third-party utility. This application is not endorsed or supported by ESRI, nor can ESRI be held responsible for any damages resulting from inappropriate use of this application.
My Mobiler v1.25 – FREEWARE
- View a mobile screen on your desktop
- Control a mobile device by using desktop keyboard and mouse
- Copy/Cut/Paste text between mobile and desktop
- Capture mobile screen
- Drag and drop files to a mobile device
- Support ActiveSync / IP Connection
- Support Mobile Explorer (File Browse)
This application allows the viewing and control of a mobile device from a desktop PC.
Additional information for downloading, installing, and the use of My Mobiler can be found at the following link: http://mymobiler.com/.
