Thanks. I was hoping to be able to stakeout directly from AutoCad dwg files. Many GIS programs can read dxf and dwg files so I will give it a try and chat with the developer about adding that functionality if it is not already there.
I did read the help about generating mbtiles of a basemap, it seemed a bit complicated and adds busywork.
My other option is to use Carlson SurvPC with a windows tablet. That software is designed to do what I need to do.
I presently use my phone as the data collector but it is not great when I keep getting calls and texts.
The last post was pretty long ago But we have ReachView 3 now and recently released DXF support. It should be useful while working with AutoCAD. If you have any questions feel free to create a new topic!
