A Farmer's Comment: "I am very pleased
with the Legend I purchased from you a month ago. It is excellent
for farming as I jump on the Quad, do a quick run around my fields,
and it gives me the exact # of acres. Also while I was air seeding,
I marked any stones I wanted to remove with a waypoint. Yesterday
I went out with the stonepicker, and went right to where they
were. I could never have remembered them without the Legend quiding
me. Most times I would use the map to find the stones, but if
that didn't work, I would click "go to", and it would guide me
right to them and tell me how many minutes/seconds I was away.
I never had so much fun picking stones before!"
