- agriculture, poultry and farming: harvesting, fertilizing, crops (corn, wheat, maize, beet, etc.) planning and estimation, field area measure, paddocks and area fencing for cows, horses, chickens, rabbits, etc.
- solar energy: area estimation for solar panels, flat roof area estimation
- construction: land survey, road sealing, parking lot repairing
- forestry: objects and tree mapping, damage area estimation, measure land area
- other: ponds size and are measure; pole lines planning; movement tracking; get exact GPS coordinates of way-points; fence calculation; geocaching.
Note: Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
