Finding broken drain tile

I am wondering if anyone has a creative idea on how to locate a collapsed drain tile. The collapsed tile is about 25ft out but I don't know where the drain runs. It is under the driveway so I don't want to just dig at 25ft out and try to find it. I also don't want to pay a plumber or rent a unit for 150$ for 10 min of work. The unit I am talking about is the camera-snake with a transmitter on it.
Any suggestions would be appriciated.

No easy way, without location equipment, the only choice you will have to the start digging from a know location all the way to the unknown location.

Either get locating equipment, rent the camera, or start digging. Spending $150 compared to restoring landscaping and digging all over to find the line sounds pretty good..
