    Default Suggestions needed. GPS+software

    Hello!

    I need some help here. I don't have much experience with the latest GPS systems and software. I'm in hopes of creating a masterpiece!!! This fall I would like to open up a corn maze here in Michigan and would like to construct it using GPS. Is there anyone out there that could suggest a good GPS and compatible software to do so? I need to be able to map the perimeter of the field , import a picture using software into the middle of the field so that I can use my portable GPS to etch out the image into the corn. Any IDeas??
    Thanks

    Well just about any GPS will do that "but since you are total Newbie to this you will need to listen to others and I'm a bit busy at the moment getting ready for my next Gold Hunt in West Ozzy, so if any others comment take note and come back and post your perception of the comments and we will correct and add more info to that. Is hard to say the words but is so easy to be there and show how to do it. "I am more show you that talk about it type thing M8" but this site has so many GPS techy peps would answer your question would be surprised if you didn't get an answer that didn't answer your question.

    Neil your up next

    If I understand you correctly, you have a image of a maze or you'll design one and you want to import this image in a GPS program using a US map.
    Then you want to export this image as a gps Track (path) to a handheld gps device and you want to etch out this image into the corn by simply following the Track on your handheld device.
    It's a piece of cake that you can do in less than 30 minutes with just basic knowledge.
    You just need a Garmin "on the trail" device and Garmin's Basecamp

    This is what I've created on a farm NE of Dundee,MI
