Map of zones


#1

Love it. I was thinking of doing this with Google Maps this morning funnily enough. It has that capability. Also to use to locate the valves etc., since I have 4 boxes that get buried under pine straw.

You could even walk to the spots in your yard and use GPS in the phone to “mark” the locations.


#3

like the idea mapping individual sprinkler heads into zone by gps mapping. good idea.

This would seem to be a nice to have feature that should be probably be looked at later in the roadmap and not delay the really requires features. Just my 2 cents :slight_smile:


#7

Love the GPS marking of the zones idea.

I know I’m performing thread necropsy here, but did you figure something out that worked well? The GPS idea sounded nice, but aren’t commercial GPS units only accurate to something like 5-10m horizontally? I could stand at two nozzles 30’ apart and see the same reading. I popped outside and the GPS app I was using was claiming +/-15 foot accuracy.

If you use a GPS enabled smartphone, they are accurate to approximately a 16 foot radius, but there’s lots of things that can interfere, such as near-by trees or even hazy skies and signal bounce.

Dual-frequency or augmented receivers, such as those that use SBAS (satellite based augmentation) are extremely accurate.
