Understood, thanks (both of you)
Post-processing is something I want to avoid if at all possible. I'm
fairly certain I can get away with that as I don't require that high a
level of accuracy.
Though a lot of the needs are for data collection by location - for
which post processing is OK, some are for direction and steering - and
when botanical localities are within 3 metres of each other that could
lead to problems (costs, damage, wasted time).
