The current version of DNRGarmin (5.4.1) is not entirely compatible with ArcGIS 10. That is, the toolbar will show up in ArcMap 10 and it will launch the DNRGarmin application but DNRGarmin does not recognize that ArcMap is open. We have not yet begun programming the new version.
The work around for the time being is:
File->Save To->File and File->Load From->File. You can save to a shapfile and add it manually to ArcGIS 10, as well as load from shapefiles created/modified in ArcGIS 10.
Garmin has posted an update to its MapSource mapping software, moving from 6.15.4 to 6.15.6. Some of the changes are operating system related, including dropping support for Windows 98, Windows Me, and Windows NT and continuing to support for Windows Vista. Other changes in this version include:
Fixed an issue with the file save dialog when the file extension field is hidden.
Fixed an issue where MapSource would crash if the route avoidance dialog would be displayed twice.
Fixed waypoint category filter issue. Now only waypoints of the selected category will be displayed.
Fixed waypoint prefixes.
Fixed an issue where MapSource would crash with certain address searches.
Fixed memory leaks in the waypoint dialog and map rendering.
Fixed an issue with saving gpx files when the file path contains Asian characters.
Fixed some hotkey issues.
Fixed an issue with searching for certain POIs.
Fixed an issue with how unlock codes were stored that caused incompatibilities with applications like Training Center.
Support Web Link Extensions in Brazilian Portuguese.
Changed waypoint image size to follow the user selected symbol size.
This suite of tools, located on a single toolbar, allows environmental, agriculture and other natural resource field workers to make sampling grids, calculate statistics for field data attributes, select which layers should be editable and navigate to specific field locations using ArcPad.
The tools download includes a read_me.txt file containing installation instructions and how each tool can be used. The tools are designed for use in ArcPad 6.0.2 and later. Although they might well be usable in older versions, this testing has not been done.
AddXY (v1.0) is an ArcView extension that should work with ArcView 3.0 and later. It adds the X and Y values of points (shapefiles or coverages) to their attribute tables. It adds the X and Y values of polygon centroids (shapefiles or coverages) to their attribute tables. It will add the X and Y value of a polygon’s labelpoint to its attribute table. Due to a bug in ArcView, it does not work consistently with node coverages, so this has been removed. The X and Y columns in the attribute table should be created with the same names and precision that the ARC/INFO command “addxy” would create.
When installing ESRI’s ArcView GIS 3.3 on the 32-bit version of Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate, the following dialog box instantly appears:
It looks pretty bad. Even the title says it’s a severe error! You have to remember, this product was developed back in the Windows 95 days.
There is an easy workaround. Open Windows Explorer and browse the contents of your ArcView CD-ROM and right-click on setup.exe. Click on the Compatibility tab, and click the checkbox next to “Run the program in compatibility mode for:” and leave the Windows XP (Service Pack 2) as is. Now click OK at the bottom of the dialog box to apply the changes and close the box. Double-click on setup.exe and your installation will begin.
