We are discovering that there are some changes that make it easier to create new irrigation programs and make adjustments quickly.
One of the things that has been a real help is the dual monitors showed in this picture.

I walk the course at least once a week and probe for wet and dry spots. I use a gps tracking app called my tracks and I put in markers for wet and dry spots. This kmz file is then loaded up on Google earth where I have created a layer of sprinkler head positions with their addresses. When I put the Google earth program up on the monitor next to the irrigation program it makes it really quick and efficient to adjust run times.
Now, I recently got an I Pad that enables me to make changes while on the course, and I will be working on importing an Apple gps tracking app into the Toro program as a layer. At this time Toro does not provide this capability, so if you are reading this and are into this type of project, I would love some help figuring it out. After all I am in Silicon Valley, with a lot of very talented creative people.
