The main differences between PC-GIS PRO and PC-GPS 09 are:
1. PC-GPS 09 provides GPS differential correction functions for people using our GPS data collectors (MC-GPS, MARCH II-E, ALTO-G12). PC-GIS PRO is for the other users who do not need differential correction functionality. Users of our FieldCE GIS app for Windows Mobile PDAs normally use PC-GIS PRO as FieldCE GIS only works with real-time GPS data and does not record raw data for differential correction. PC-GPS 09 is more expensive than PC-GIS PRO.
2. PC-GPS 09 provides COGO functions for creating new points using coordinate geometry. PC-GIS PRO does not.
3. PC-GIS PRO provides a Navigation function for use with an external GPS receiver that sends out NMEA messages. PC-GPS 09 does not as it is mainly for use by our GPS data collector users.
4. Now we also have iOS apps for GPS/GIS data collection. PC-GPS 09 and PC-GIS PRO are compatible with iGPSGIS II (for iPhone) and iCMTGIS II (for iPAD). Our PC-GIS X is compatible with iCMTGIS III and iCMTGIS PRO, both of which can run on iPad or iPhone devices.
There are a few other differences within certain functions or utilities. Please send email to email@example.com if you have questions about any specific functionality.
