Question about GPS
I would like to use handheld computers with built-in GPS or an external GPS device to record waypoints in the field, and also enter some related data. Below is my dream wish list.... I would appreciate your input on what platform you recommend for this.
- simple form to collect 10-15 fields of data using mainly drop-down boxes
- each time a record is created, the current GPS coordinates are recorded
- the data can be downloaded into an Access database
- ultimately it would be cool if the device could also take a photograph and associate the photo with that record
I have some limited exposure to Pendragon forms running on older Palm technology - but I would like to learn of technology improvements since then.
I am very experienced with VBA and Access and SQL. It would be ideal to be able to leverage these skills instead of learning new proprietary scripting languages, but I will if I have to.
Thanks for your input.

SOURCE: Plotting Waypoints
Here's the link to the user manual if you need it; http://www8.garmin.com/manuals/GPS60_OwnersManual.pdf Garmin says; To manually enter in the coordinates for a waypoint on the 60 or 76 -series units, use the following steps: Press and hold the 'Mark' button. Use the up arrow to scroll up to the "Location" field and press 'Enter'. A new box pops up to enter in the new coordinates. Go to "OK" and press 'Enter'. Select "OK" at the bottom right corner to save all changes. Hope this helps :)

If, as I suspect, this is for a web form, then it effectively can't be done on a "proper" web server. This is because you cannot install MS Office on an MS server OS (e.g. Server 2003). You need to use MS SQL Server or MySQL instead. If this is for very limited use (i.e. only a few clients at a time), you can use XP running IIS but this is really not a good idea. The sedurity implications don't bear thinking about :) Linking a web page to Access can probably be done using ASP (never even thought of trying it - anyone else here know for sure?) If you are using a Linux web server then it's totally out of the question. Use Webmin or PHPMySQL to set up a MySQL database & PHP to code the linkage between the page and the DB. There are plenty of tools out there that will automate this for you, some of them Open Source and therefore free to acquire.

Are you sure you're using the exact same format on GoogleEarth and your GPS?
GoogleEarth: save the waypoints in a KML file (NOT KMZ) to your computer, naming it appropriately.
Go to http://www.gpsvisualizer.com/gpsbabel/ and convert the KML file to a GPX file, using their converter. They will present you with a file to download. Download it and send those waypoints to your unit and you'll be set to go.

Hi there. I didn't notice this was so old until I had already worked on it for some time. Did you get this the way you want it? If not, I suggest either using a BeforeUpdate control to ensure the condition is met that the subform contain data, or validate the particular field(s) with isnull. Thanks for posting back if you still need help, or otherwise rating FixYa!

You need to protect the form (Protect Document, Editing Restrictions (Filling in Forms) then Start Enforcing Protection, the drop down menu will then work.
