Can Deed Calls & Stakeout help me locate a property boundary?

“If I have a survey and want to identify the boundary line between my property and my neighbors do you have an app that can accommodate that. Doesn’t have to be exact I’m just looking for an idea of where the property line is.”
There are two apps that you could consider.
Both the Deed Calls – Area – Perimeter app and the Deed Calls & Stakeout app will let you enter the direction and length of the boundary line and plot it on the map.
The Line Stakeout function in the Deed Calls & Stakeout app will report your distance from the line as you move parallel to the line. The Deed Calls – Area – Perimeter app does not provide the Stakeout functions. This means that you will visually judge your distance from the property line by watching the GPS marker on the screen that represents your position.

Now, with either app, you will need to specify the point at which the boundary line starts. With the Apple Map displayed on the screen, select that point as the first node, then add one line segment and enter the distance and bearing of S2-18-46E provided on your printed survey map.
If you are unable to identify the starting point of the boundary line, then try to find another corner of the property that can be easily identified on the displayed Apple Map, such as a road intersection. Then enter all the line segments leading to and including the boundary line.
