Greetings all. As I am not up with all this technical stuff, could someone please tell me in simple terms which IPad or Tablet I should look at to use Tengraph on. I would also like it to have a sim card so it is not reliant on Wi Fi. Thanks in advance,

Mmmm, looks like Tengraph may not work on an android device.  http://www.dmp.wa.gov.au/4742.aspx  

Maybe contact DMP and ask them if Tengraph will run with android devices.  If it does not, that would limit the tablets selection to windows based.  Let us know how you go.

I know nothing about IPads

Best of luck.

I use the tablet PC combo in the link below coupled to the new telstra 4g modem, the antenna in the link below it, is the one iv spent many hrs researching to give the best performance for my needs when im back out bush in WA.  
I doubt your going to get much from a cell enabled ipad or tablet unless you plan on being fairly close to towns or mine sites with cell ability. Finding one that's able to run Tengraph may also be a challenge. No tablet i know of has an antenna port for external antenna use. The 4g modem in the link has two antenna ports. With the antenna connected the tablet will be able to access the net from a long distance giving me access to tengraph while out on the job if need be.....mostly to shuv down the throat of dopey lease holders who have no idea of their boundaries.
The tablet also has seven sensors of which one is a compass, some of the others include a cell enabled GPS, the rest have their uses also.

The tablet runs full Windows 8.1, combined with various APPS for mapping ect ect, makes it a very versatile gadget for use out in the field over ipads and other tablets running Android OS.

The modem has now been tested on the 4g network and can certainly get its rs into gear, but im now in an area serviced by 3g, and with the ability to tether via USB, it too can perform while working the tengraph which is net based and at times pretty average when loading pages. This all comes into play when your signal is less than adequate for use on tengraph in WA, many times you can have enough signal to get on the net, but its pert near useless when you cant surf/load pages.
The best thing about the modem is being fully portable, not that i would but you could take it walkabout with your tablet or smartphone, sit on top of a hill and facebook your rs off if thats your thing. Laughing 
Fitted to your quad bike or left in your car for when your out on the job away from camp.
Iv tested both the tablet and modem charging with a few different micro USB2 leads from other devices.. meaning one lead can be used to charge both items from a USB 12v socket, no need to carry special charging gear.

Good luck on your hunt, i hope this has been somewhat helpful.

Thanks narrawa for that great post kwdf 

Lines up with what I thought tenograph and geoview are both Citrix based which from what I can work out will only work on windows.

If anyone knows a way to get geoview to work on iPad would be stoked to find out how?

Hi Narrawa, Thanks for your post that's just what I've been looking for. Are you running Geomap WA on your system, do you know if Geomap WA will run on windows 8 . Cheers Max

Iv not got around to installing Geomap WA on my new system yet, it works on win 7 ok so now that the Citrix receiver has been fixed to work on win 8 and 8.1, id say it wont have a problem if its required to run Geomap WA.??
Saying that, iv not had much to do with Geomap WA.....it didn't float my boat.

Given tablets and especially ipads are spreading fast, it wont be long before there is a fix for mapping programs for the other OS gaining popularity....there may already be one, but im no help on macs or any other OS. For me, its better the devil you know, than the one you dont. Very Happy 

Now, a question for those who do use it.....can Geomap tell you whats under the surface.???

Geomap WA runs quite happily on Windows 8....will it tell you whats under the surface, well you can put all the lease boundaries on it you can hook up a GPS to it so you know where your at etc, you can click on some info buttons and it may tell you about soil samples and drill holes etc, so in that respect it does tell you a bit about whats under the surface. Also being a Geo map it also tells you what type of ground your driving on across the surface, CZL etc

I use a iPad I run a gis roam app (free version) on it just download everything off dmp website auto calibrates everything in to place and can turn on as many layers as u wish. I just refresh live and pending temerments every time I am heading out. If I don't have service where I'm heading I just leave the screen loaded and can still use it when out there I have found this very handy and so easy for us tech challenged people to use lol!
