There are many methods to get the most accurate date and time on our rugged handheld computers. If your handheld tablet is running Windows 10 (such as on Mesa 3 or Mesa 2), refer to GPS Time Sync Software for Windows OS

For handheld tablets running older versions of Windows, use the following methods and sources synchronize the date and time on your device.

For the Microsoft Windows Mobile (Windows Embedded Handheld 6.5) operating system, information and tools for establishing time synchronization, (particularly when developing a software app) can be found at the following webpages.

To collect date and time in SHP (shape) files using the ESRI ArcPad software, an applet (script) can be installed into the \ArcPad\Applets folder and set under Paths in ArcPad as described at the following website.
