    Current version acquire GPS position only when you collect a new point. But sometimes constellation arrangement of satellites not provide a "good" precision, even if below level of accuracy required for your purpose. And so, when you press again on "position button" you could acquire a better position...

    To improve GPS accuracy (like Collector APP), the Survey123 App should have the ability to "average" GPS point data from the data stream for a specifc amount of time, rather than just capturing a single sentence from the GPS data stream. Perhaps collect the point data for 5 or 10 seconds, then use the average of these to calculate the position of the point.
