The first thing ArcPad users ask is: "How do I know I am collecting data?"

These easy instructions guide you in the installation of a small applet to enable ArcPad-users to beep while GPS positions are being recorded for features.  This helps ArcPad users know when the software is actively collecting data. It also makes the ArcPad learning curve a little less steep for those coming to ArcPad from a TerraSync background.

Installation instructions

1. Download the BEEP script  for ArcPad 7.1 or ArcPad 8.0

2. In the ArcPad, the applets path must be : Tools -> Options -> Paths Tab  This verifies that ArcPad will look for the Sounds.apa applet in the correct location.

3. Exit out of ArcPad (File/Exit)

Make sure the software is not just minimized but truly not running

4. Unzip the attached zip file

5. Connect mobile device to desktop/laptop via ActiveSync

6. Copy the 2 .wav files and the  .apa applet file to this mobile device path: \ProgramFiles\ArcPad\Applets

7. Restart ArcPad

8.  Turned up the volume to hear the effects of this script
