The application Trek2There is a great concept app that will potentially be very useful. Currently it is being held back by it being a separate application and the half baked integration is not working on android and possibly iOS.

I feel a better solution to take advantage of Trek2There, would be to add it as a function of the collector app.

This is how I would think it would work:

you select a feature that you have collected and select "trek" from a popup which would then trigger the navigation compass to open, all within collector

It is possible to access Trek2There from Collector.  Do this by creating a feature that can Record GPS metadata; the fields you will specifically need are: ESRIGNSS_LATITUDE and ESRIGNSS_LONGITUDE.  When you create the map, create a pop-up that uses a "Custom Attribute Display". This option allows you to create a link that will open Trek2There on your device with your destination set.  The URL will be:

arcgis-trek2there:///?stop={ESRIGNSS_LATITUDE},{ESRIGNSS_LONGITUDE}

I agree. This functionality should be a part of Collector rather than being a separate app.

Check out "What's new?—Collector for ArcGIS | ArcGIS" and "Quick reference—Collector for ArcGIS | ArcGIS" from Jan. 16/17, 2019. 

Would have preferred numeric bearing instead of cardinal/inter-cardinal directions and options for picking distance units, but a very good improvement otherwise!

Lance, for our business, having the bearing is critical! Thanks for bringing this up.

Hi Zachary,

I'm glad you agree!  How about a "vote up" on my Idea: https://community.esri.com/ideas/16282-change-compass-direction-format-and-distance-units

To my knowledge, as of 29Oct19, an update for this has not been implemented. 

Thanks!
