Testing Mobile devices

Blog Post created by holdenj on Oct 26, 2014

Friday October 24th, I went to Capitol Forest testing mobile devices.


We tested the following:

  • Collector on iPad
  • Collector on Android Galaxy
  • Trimble Pro 6H with TerraSync
  • Trimble Pro XT with ArcPad.
  • Javad GPS receiver.


The iPad Mini with Collector was very simple to use and worked well.   We even found all the point locations using the iPad Mini.

We used collector with the Galaxy but it kept crashing.

The Pro XT device sometimes did not pick up at GPS signal under the forest.

The accuracy of the devices will be tested later.
