New Feature Details


Esri Runtime 100.6

Esri Runtime 100.6 is a revolution in mapping performance and features that supports vector maps, ArcGIS web map labels, KML layers and can be 20 times faster than the previous solution especially when accessing maps with multiple layers as you can see in the video below.  

Unit Status List

Tablet Command Two Way customers can now see the status of all units in a table view.  For convenience, the table can be sorted and filtered by unit name, unit status and time.  The table is color coded to match unit status as color in the map view, and users can tap on the unit to see its location on the map.

Tablet Command supports an integration with FireMapper Enterprise.  This allows a user with a Tablet Command Enterprise Pro account and Fire Mapper Enterprise account to create an incident specific map in FireMapper with one button tap.  Users in FireMapper will be able to view, make edits and return to Tablet Command with the tap of one button.


Tablet Command 2.0 will be available for manual update from February 10th through February 17th. From February 17th to February 24th, users who have application auto-update enabled will begin receiving the update automatically.
