    this App has potential. It is difficult to comment in a negative vein because, as far as ipad Apps, there’s little to compare it to without doubling the money, or more. Still, if you want this as a field App working as a Forester, look closely before you buy. Myself, and other field Foresters, when the GPS is on it is on for a reason. The reason is to gather data for many varied reasons. This App, if you are skillful in the setup, will allow you to use GPS to travel from plot to plot. You will have to stay alert and note each individual plot will have to have proximity alert armed. This will take some getting used to if you, like me, are new to Ipad and, Ipad Apps. Finally, the reason I would recommed against this App ?? I found, after purchasing, it does NOT show, nor record tracks. The track data is hugely important to me, at the end of the day. There is a ‘promise’ this is to be incorportated within the ” PRO” version. Release date unknown, BUT, the price is promised to increase, significantly. In the meantime, unless you have no use for track data, save your money for the fully functional version.

      Hi Byron,

      Thank you for your comment. As mentioned previously, we are working on Forester GPS GIS II and will release it in the near future. The plan is to list it at the App Store at $149.99.

      Forester GPS GIS II will include GPS GIS Data Collection as well as the Tracklog function. If you have suggestions for any other functionality to include in this app, now is the time to let us know. We cannot promise to implement all the suggestions, but we will take a serious look at them.

      With respect to the proximity alert, you just need to set it up once within the Stakeout function. Suppose it’s set at 30 ft, then whenever you are within 30 ft of the target, you can hear urgent beeps and or see the “Target!” message flash on the screen. When you select the next target (such as a plot center), you do not need to set the proximity alert again.

      By the way, if you wish, you could create a Line Feature joining the plot centers in the order you wish to visit. Then you can select this Line Feature and use the Point Stakeout function to help you go from one point to the next in the prescribed order.
