comment Split Lines at Intersection of Other Lines
gene; unfortunately, v.overlay is expecting an area for one fo the layers as well. As per the manual: "v.overlay allows the user to overlay two vector maps. Features in ainput can be lines or areas and are cut with areas in binput."

comment How can I create/draw “freehand” polygon features in QGIS 2.2?
What OS are you running? How did you install QGIS 2.2? I just tried on my Windows7 system, with QGIS2.2 installed via OSGEO4W and it worked fine. Are you sure you have a polygon or line layer, and that it's editable?

comment How to avoid snapping errors in QGis?
I rarely use the snapping settings in meters--I find that pixels makes more sense. If you measure your small differences, are they less than 1.5 meters, or greater?

comment How to determine if an object is a circle
Thanks; you're right, and that makes sense! I guess the difference was how many digits of pi used - I only used a couple digits!

comment Is there a consumer-level handheld GPS that can use standard GIS data as its background layer?
Agreed; if you can figure out the battery concern, that tethering a 'real' GPS to a smartphone is likely the best option.
