    My customers like seeing the footage played out on the screen but for real practical purposes it's just not that accurate.

    It's convient for general layout of the underground plumbing but give me a transmitter and locator any day over a counter.

      the engineers put some real math trig into the count plus and i have to say, it's probably within 2% accuracy. i use to just use colored tape and read the numbers aloud. but now the numbers are so accurate, i let the counter on screen do it for me.

      i only use the date and time for an intro and at the end of the tape so as to not block the view. but the footage i use 100% of the time

        It's nice to have a footage to know where to "Work" a spot.

                Very important to me for several things, not so much for locates; for that I agree use a locator.

                Agree also it is useful for knowing where to put your nozzle/cutter if you want to work an area.

                I use it a lot for setting up pm jetting; I cam to know the distance I need to go from a given access to accomplish what I need to; know where the belly is, the junction with the main or the next line, etc. Then I make a cheat sheet for maintenances showing acesses, distances, where to hook on water, who to bill and how much, the contact name and #, etc so another tech who's not been there before (or me if it's been a while) has enough to walk in cold and still do a decent job on a pm cleaning.

                Also love it on recordings; the lines don't change much unless they get dug up, so it is good info on archives for if I'm called back to something later for a backup or for pm.
                This is my reminder to myself that no good will ever come from discussing politics or religion with anyone, ever.
