Fence & tile lines with GPS

Can I use the GPS in my lightbar to drive the tractor down tile lines and along fenced or creeks (use the offset) to draw lines on a map I can print?  I'd like to make a record of some things like tile lines while I still know where they are.  Is there a way to take information from a photo or graphics program like Paint and import it as a GPS line?

Re: Fence & tile lines with GPS

I have an old version of MS Streets and Trips that can import latitude & longitude points and plot them on a map. It could also import multiple points at one time from Excel. I don't know if you can do this with the new versions or not.

Re: Fence & tile lines with GPS

On a couple of farms we had tiled the tile guy had a buddy fly over and take an aerial photo. Not as good as GPS but does give you a good idea if you ever want to look for a line.
