tracking/gridding app

Post  deano on Sun Jun 25, 2017 10:27 am

Has anyone used these types of apps?

I am looking for something similar that I can record where I have been within a small patch, like house block size, ( good old proper house block sized unlike the pissy tiny ones people build on today)
I dont want to fork out for a top of the range gps unit, and the option to include images on site seems cool.

With a accuracy of 3 meters for a good GPS I would say no such thing is available for what you want, as it has up to 10 ft gap variance on the same line.

Over in WA you have plus or minus 5m variance.....it aint going to work. However, if your nugget locations are all logged then
they will all be approx but patterns will clearly be seen.

I agree the resolution is not good enough and the device needs a few meters to recognize change of direction.

When I was in the west recently, my GPS failed so I down loaded a an APP for the Samsung call "GEO tracker" you can put in way point's and see where you have been walking, only draw back it did not have a GOTO function.

Good on ya Hobo.
Do you think the tracking was Ok, could you keep that tracking as a file or overlay it on Google maps or similar?

Cheers
