Just purchased today with my iPhone. Would like to put on my iPad as well. How to do that?

Many of our apps can be used on iPad and iPhone devices, a few are for iPad devices only, and iGPSGIS II is for use on iPhone devices.

Per information provided by Apple, if you use the same Apple ID on your iPad as your iPhone, you should be able to download the app that you have purchased onto your iPad as well, if you enable Family Sharing.

I want to know how many devices can be used with the same account

According to Apple, “You can have ten devices (no more than five of them computers) associated with your Apple ID and iTunes at one time.”

OK to upgrade to iOS 12.0?

“I just bought the IcmtGis Pro software today and I did install it on my Iphone 6s. I created new jobs and stored some points in it. When using the e-mail file functionality, I see only default jobs that were in the system but I do not see my newly created jobs. . . . I am running IOS 11.4.1 ready to upgrade to 12.0 but I did not want to screw things even more with the upgrade to 12.0 … Any suggestion on the fact that I should upgrade to 12.0 or I should not?”

It’s likely that you have the app set up to store data to iCloud. Please read the article at the following link.

It is all right to upgrade to iOS 12.

Using Stakeout iCMT to find property line

“I purchased this app in order to find my property lines, I can not figure out how to use it.”

This app will help you get to a Point Feature that you have added to the map or move along a Line or Area Feature that you have added to a map.

If you can identify your property on the displayed Satellite Map, you could first create a new Area Feature then use the “Add Area manually” function to digitize the property boundary on the map. Then you can use the Line Stakeout function to help you walk along the plot and try to find the stakes.

If you have a property boundary description that contains bearing and distance information as well as the coordinates for the point of beginning, then you could use one of our apps that provides the Deed Calls and Stakeout functions. Of these, the most economical is the Deed Calls & Stakeout app.

Property Dispute

“I would like to use you app to find our property line stakes. I have a plat map of my property. I have also found two marker Stakes on the property. Can you guide me to the correct app to go from my steaks with my cellphone and Mark all of my eight corners?”

Several of our apps provide the Deed Calls and Stakeout functions that can help locate stakes using a property boundary description containing bearing and distance information and the coordinates for the point of beginning.

The most economical app for your situation is the Deed Calls & Stakeout app. The iPhone GPS is not sufficiently accurate for you to establish new stakes, but you could use the following procedure to find your existing stakes.

Turn on GPS and the Satellite Map.

If you don’t have the LAT LON coordinates for the point of beginning, you could stand at the point of beginning and tap the Pick GPS button to get its coordinates. This will not be exact, as the GPS accuracy of the iPhone is limited.

On the First Node page, enter the local magnetic declination into the Orientation field.

Use the Calls Page to enter your deed calls and plot the property.

Under GPS, select Line Stakeout and select your plot as the Target.

Tap the Message tab to see how far you are from the property line. Move along the plot in such a way as to minimize the Range value.

When you get close to a corner, search for a stake. The accuracy of the GPS on your iPhone will determine the radius of your search area. This could be 30 ft (or 10 ft under favorable conditions).

Charges on apps sold via the Apple App Store

“I bought this program and no longer need it and want to remove the future charge to my credit card, can you please respond with the procedure to do this.”

The software license for the Deed Calls & Stakeout app is a one-time purchase. Same with all of our other apps. There should be no future charge to your credit card for this app.

Our iOS apps are sold via the Apple App Store, and we do not deal with sales and payments. If you still have concerns, please contact the App Store.

App for verifying survey drawing and recording building corners

“I have a survey drawing of my property and my property has metal stakes at the corner. I would like to verify the survey drawing to the stakes. I also would like to identify where the corners of my home is located on my property. What would be the best software for these requirements?”

Our Deed Calls function will let you enter bearing and distance information from your survey drawing to generate a plot in the app. You will need to know the coordinates of the point of beginning in order to correctly place the plot on the map.

Our Stakeout functions will help you get to a point or node (where the stake is supposed to be).

These functions are provided in a few of our apps, such as Deed Calls & Stakeout, iCMTGIS III and iCMTGIS PRO.

iCMTGIS III and iCMTGIS PRO also provide GPS data collection functionality that will let you record the corners of your home or any other points, lines and areas.

The important issue is what compatible GPS receiver to use to meet the degree of accuracy that you need. The GPS on iOS devices are good to about 10 meters.

GIS-grade GPS like the Bad Elf GPS and the Dual XGPS-150A claim 2 – 5 meter accuracy. You could use a GIS-grade GPS and Deed Calls & Stakeout to roughly check the stake locations against the drawing.

Survey-grade GPS devices from EOS and Geneq are quite expensive. You might be able to rent an iSXBlue Platinum or an EOS Arrow from a supplier to use with iCMTGIS PRO for best accuracy in stakeout and recording GPS points.
