I have relied totally on ArcPad since 2002 when I did field work on Rota, CNMI for an airport runway extension (finally construction has been completed!). In places like that in the Pacific Islands, and even in many locations in Hawaii, in fact all islands with hills, valleys, etc in remote areas, there is limited if any cell phone service. I need ArcPad. Should I be buying up old versions of this software to keep my business alive? Maybe most of the ESRI folks are not as hard-core field workers as some of us. Working with streets, etc. is a different livelihood altogether. I guess I could go to Terrasync, but ArcPad is so basic and useful!
