Was out playing around with my antique Eagle AccuNav Sport GPS. Took me about 20 minutes to try to remember how enter coordinates manually into the instrument. Used the MeriPlat to get to the parking lot and then used ‘luggable’ Eagle to go the rest of the way.
Because there is no “arrow”, I had to use the plot screen with the GPS oriented to the north to see what direction I had to go to zero in on the cap. Got the audible signal from the GPS about 3 meters from the cap and ……. there it was, along with 4 other individuals from SAIT who were practicing to be surveyors. You should have heard their “snorts” when I showed up with my not so ‘state of the art’ GPS. Thanks for the cache.
