    Saw it in this issue of turf mag. What do you guys think about paying to use a sight that figures out how much SF of properties? I am not really sure as to what it is and how much it costs. Anyone already do their homework on this and want to share? I was going to call and ask about it but i missed the hours of operation :/

    I used them a few times for very large projects I was bidding on. They used to have a package you could buy for $30 and it got you 10 uses I think. I had bought that a hand full of times and it would very well. Made for a very nice and impressive presentation when we printed out the aerial view of the complex. Now I think they changed their pricing structure. If we have anymore large bids then ill be using them again.

    It's a phenomenal tool. If your bidding large commercial jobs its awesome. Cheaper than driving around to get lowball end by the customer in person lol at 4 $ gallon

    I use it at times I had signed up from them to debt my account once a month. They only charge me 4 per look up. Its very nice beats driving around.

    I used it a lot a couple years back. Back when I could buy 100 look ups for like $125. They have priced me out of using it much any more. Only for the quick need the info now kind of bid. Now it's $4 per look up, google earth pro does about the same thing for measuring goes, and for me it is cheaper in the long run.
