Stake line or stake point on line (xg version)

Post by bobL » Wed Jul 20, 2005 1:30 pm

When using the stake line routine, I want to turn an arbitrary angle to a defined line and stake a point on that line. I do exactly as instructed in the manual but instead of getting a distance to come or go, I get an offset right or left? This seems to happen when the angle between the two lines
is small, when I try to stake a point that is on a greater angle I get a come or go distance. Please clarify...thanks ...Bob

It should be working as you described. Perhaps you could forward me your project so I can take a look at it. In your email, describe to me the points your setup on, what point your backsighting and which line you're trying to stake.
