    Do any of you use a GPS to measure your lawns? I used one today to measure a 4 acre property. It worked great. It was a cheap one that measured feet. Does anyone use the ones that measure the sq feet? I did a search and read all the post but would like some current feed back. I am also interested in connecting it to my Palm zire 71 for mapping. What mapping program would someone recommend?
