How Straight Line Between two Points

Hi, there doesn’t seem to be anyway to collect data from two points (A & B) then stake out a line between (A&B). I didn’t expect full COGO functions with the unit but I thought this would be a basic feature. Even if the the points had a Bearing you could maintain a heading OR a shadow line that is displayed between the points so you can see if you have moved of course. Not just a connection from the point to the rover position. Is this a future feature? it would be so useful.

In the field it is basic to have this option implemented in stakeout.

The chart illustrates what is required.

Given two known points A and B, let us show the distance D from the Rover to the line A-B perpendicularly and the distance X from point A.

Hi guys,

This feature is not there, currently, but we have plans to add it in future versions of ReachView 3. We had requests for this and other COGO features and understand the demand.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts too!

Very excited to know it is being considered!

Being able to measure two points, offset and plot a straight line would make cutting brush for fence lines a breeze!

It’s called “perpendicular offset” in the CONUS
