Plotting distance and direction, looking for feature to buy
Trying to help my dad buying a GPS. This is more of an engineering thing than anything else. He has a lot of property and it has been surveyed so he has a map and it has distance and direction from each point to point on the property sub dividing into a few plots. He wants to be able to go to the primary survey marks and use the distance and direction to walk the property and save waypoints for certain things. So, do handhelds have a feature plot feature like that "I want to go 98-deg for 1100 feet?" I know they have a built in compass and will tell you how far you have traveled but I want to pre set that info because if you stray from your initial point then re-aim the compass it won't take you the exact same point. If so, what models or brands am i looking for. I have a basic understanding of gps's from the Army, i've just never went out and bought on. If you all can give me an idea i what i'm looking for i can research from there. Thanks!
