That may be something the bear bait hunters up here can use.
You have to register your stand complete with coordinates with fish and game, and it can not within a mile of any cabin at all, which looks like that would be hard to determine.

This would be right up my brother's alley.  He sits in a tree stand or on a stone wall and plays with his phone when he's hunting.

...me and Christy just marked off our west line...



Accurate enough to use for property boundaries ??  Hmmm, this has some possibilities.   ^-^

As to the accuracy, well I'd be the first to say it would not stand up in the court room, but for a simple timber management job, or hunting as its' designed for, yes.  Our declination here is a positive 1-1/2 degree. So I choose to use the compass in conjunction with the boundary lines the program gives, which are really very close, and I stayed inside the line for good measure. The one feature I really was impressed with was the parcel info option, which gives the owners name based off the location of the cell phone.  So for hunting or any other outdoor activity, it's possible to know within a very close proximity of where you are standing, and who's the owner.

Neat stuff, today's tech.

I remember starting off with the very first IBMs and Apple computers in school.  And now look what we have.  I wonder if years down the road my future ancestors will be looking back on when I was alive and wonder what I thought of all the technology progression during my lifetime the same way I look back on my great grandfather and wonder what he thought of the way airplanes and vehicles progressed through his lifetime.

Ox, my great grandmother came to Texas in a covered wagon and lived to see regular flights to the moon. I have always said that there will never be another generation see so many changes. She did live to be well over a hundred too though.

Now that's truly awesome.  And I believe you're right.  That generation and the one after were the luckiest to have lived.  It's going backwards now.
