Have you ever wondered where is it or how to turn on the “Status Bar” for ArcPad 8 and 10?  This helps you see scale of the map and allows you to see the In the Field Estimated Accuracy or Post Processed Horizontal Estimated Accuracy instead of having to toggle over to the Trimble GPS Correct/Trimble Positions screen to see this.  The “Status Bar” allows you to be more productive and allows you to concentrate on collecting data via the ArcPad Map window.

See the following screen shots to click on the “Options” drop down and to click on “Status Bar” to make it active.
