I have a gps somewhere I got free when I ordered something..never used it.. but my question.. I bought a farm and a small part..3-4 acres is across the road from the main farm.. its not fenced or surveyed.. but the deed shows the boundaries.. can I take the numbers off the deed and find my boundary lines using a gps?

Should be able to put coordinates in and it should take you the that point. Google your GPS brand and model, should have some videos showing you how to do certain things.

I would imagine it would let you do that.

As long as you can get the coordinates off the map that has your boundaries on it, you can enter them into your gps. Make sure you have your gps set up in the same format for entering coordinates as the map is, or what you enter won't even be close to where you are.

Most deeds have surveying nomenclature. I don't think GPS can use those numbers without a conversion.

I know for my location, I can go to the assessor's website and it will show me my property boundaries on a downloadable map.
