AMC Inc. introduces for distribution on their website https://www.AzTechSoft.com, the latest Version 2.5 of their popular and unique GPS2CAD. They have also introduced a “Recreational Version” called GPS2CAD-rv that preserves the core functionality of GPS2CAD and sells for $100 less.
The programs, are designed to interface with a GPS receiver and plot the waypoints and track points directly into AutoCAD.
GPS2CAD is designed to serve the engineering, GPS, and GIS communities with a cost effective alternative to some of the very expensive software packages now on the market” said Mark Crigler, President of AMC Inc.. “Currently there are few (if any) products that have the simple, rock solid capabilities that this program has, that sell for less than a few thousand dollars”. The price for GPS2CAD Ver 2.5 is $245.
Version 2.5 of GPS2CAD adds significant new features, based on user comments. First among these requests is compatibility with most Garmin handheld receivers, including the popular eTrex line. It also includes greatly improved printing capabilities for the GPS points and CAD points. Preserved from the earlier version are the features to import and export of the points to text files, the ability to edit the points, and the capability of uploading those points back to the GPS Receiver.
GPS2CAD-rv is a stream-lined version for those who want the ability to download and plot their points in AutoCAD, but need it more for a recreational use. While selling for $145, it preserves the primary download and plot functions, but does not have the import/export, print, or upload capability.
