THE HAPPY PROSPECTOR

Post by Moneybox on Thu 09 Feb 2017, 1:44 pm

Hi Guys,

Has anybody tried The Happy Prospector App for Android. I've just got a Samsung tablet with GPS but it won't take Geomap so I need to try another option.

Phil

Get OziExplorer for Android. Only around $30 and runs all ozi maps and easy to use. I"ve been using it since it first came out and it is grat, I load all the DMP maps and Auslig stuff. Have to get from OziExplorer website not available from Appstore. Hope this helps...

I use oziexplorer and love it but havent been able to suss out getting DMP maps with current tenements on there. I actually bought happy prospector app a few days ago and it seems pretty good, its great that with a click of a button you get the tenements updated, 20 bucks well spent i reckon. Using a GPS mapping system when you are out and about definately makes life so much easier, not sure why i didnt start doing it earlier.

Hi Phil,

Cheers

I think Geomap is a Windows application rather than Android.

I also got The Happy Prospector. Looks good. Unless you buy the annual or another subscription you may not be able to flag locations nor have the tenements show their numbers.

I've got the Samsung Galaxy Tab A. Geomap needs Microsoft frame 4 to operate. I dont think it can be made work on the Android.

I'm not sure about the Tab A, mine has Windows 10 installed on it, probably why I can get GeoMap.

Thanks Kurk , I was meant to be heading out prospecting with friends on the upcoming long weekend but it's been called off. Looks like we're not going far till April but it looks like i'll be loading up The Happy Prospector before we go.

GeoMap
I went through this some months ago trying to load on my Android tablet
Rang the DMP and was told GeoMap is only compatible with Windows OS
So bought a Windows 10 tablet and GeoMap works fine

Yes Goldstick is right.

Geomap will ONLY work on a Windows based PC/Laptop/Table.

On a Mac OS you can if you run the Windows platform as well.

The Happy prospector, works on Android and gives you your position and the tenements is paid over the top of the basic map.

Hi Goldstrijk;

What Windows based tablet did you get and how easy is the screen to read in normal daylight?

I would be interested to get an opinion from anyone else who is using a tablet to run Geomap.

As a matter of interest, today I spoke with a chap from DMP regarding the release of the new version of GeoMap. He wasn’t really sure when it might be released and seemed to suggest that it wouldn’t be that different from the current version. The new version has fixed some bugs and includes a couple of new features. Thanks.

Hi Col
I got mine from Pocketronics, Pendo 10", Windows 10, approx $200 delivered from the East
Also got a Logitech WiFi keyboard and mouse from Woollies for approx $39 and a windscreen dashboard mount from Hong Kong for $10 delivered
Very happy with the setup, haven't used it in the ute yet, so don't know how the light affects the screen, but I think no matter what screen you have the sunlight will affect it to some extent

Pete, thanks for that. I see that Officeworks are selling the tablet and keyboard for $248. I'll drop in and have a look at it.
From what I can gather, this tablet appears not to have built in GPS, so I guess you would need to use it with an external GPS dongle.
