When you enter deed calls into the program can you start it on a specified corner then rotate to another known GPS’d corner?

Yes. The Deed Calls app as well as the Deed Calls function in some of our apps will let you change the first node location and the orientation of the deed plot.

The changes in the 1.0.3 update of the Deed Calls & Stakeout app for iPad and iPhone are:

1. The deed plot area will be filled with the specified area pattern when the closing error is less than 1 meter.

2. The issue reported by a user that Auto-close did not work properly with non-zero Orientation has been fixed.

Entering Deed Calls with non-zero orientation angle

A Deed Calls & Stakeout user reported a couple issues:

“1) I can only get the fill to work if I use auto close.

2) Deeds I’m working with specify directions in magnetic north, so I use the orientation angle to correct for magnetic declination. When using an orientation angle to correct for magnetic declination, auto close does not work correctly.

. . . . . Are these bugs, or am I using the app incorrectly? If they are bugs, any chance these will be fixed? Thanks for the great apps”

Thank you very much for reporting these issues.

1) We will modify the app such that the area will be filled with the area pattern when the closing error is less than 1 meter.

2) The issue of Auto-close with non-zero Orientation will be fixed in the next update. Meanwhile you could complete the deed plot with Orientation set to 0 then enter the actual orientation angle to rotate the plot.
