Subject Importing Geodatabase into Trimble GeoXT GPS Unit for use in ArcPad 7.0 
Author Jared Barrett

Message Hello,
I have a Trimble GeoXT GPS unit and I'm trying to import several geodatabases into it in order to use them in ArcPad. How would I got about doing this? I've tried once but I keep getting a message it needs to convert the files into another format and I'm afraid I'll lose data this way. So again, my question is, how would I import a ArcView geodatabase into a Trimble GeoXT GPS Unit which is already preloaded with ArcPad 7.0. Thanks,

Message Unfortunately you cant. AP doesnt support GDB at this time. search for threads on check in / check out data, or you can manually send over shapefiles.

Message The process you need to go through is to check your GDB data out to arcpad - this process creates shapefile extracts of the GDB feature classes you choose. You edit those shapefiles in the field with ArcPad and then go through a process to 'check in' those data - that process loads new data you collected in the field into your GDB feature classes.
