I have been using QGIS for years but when v. 2 came out and important functionality seems to no longer work. In 1.8 the "capture point" or "capture line" buttons on the GPS panel would work. Ever since 2.0 I have been unable to make these work. What happened? Maybe it is something different than QGIS because I also have switched to using windows 8 tablets in the field environment where I use the system.
btw--a related question, QGIS doesn't seem to be able to capture Z information in any case. Capturing Z for points, to me, is an essential feature that seems missing. Maybe I'm missing something here that is in v. 2 that I just don't understand. TP
