When working in the field it would be nice to have a scale bar on the Collector app. When collecting points on open water, you may not have a visual reference of how zoomed in you are on the basemap.Also, it would be extremely helpful to have a way to navigate with bearing and distance to a point, like ArcPad had
Botanical gardens face the same issue in that we work at a large scale and need to know the distance between objects, especially plants. Having dynamic scale bar would be a significant benefit in helping our staff orient themselves while in the field. I recognize that the scale may be intuitive for users who are working at the "street scale", but working at a "plant scale" requires more detail and a scale bar would be helpful.
I agree, and I've posted this idea (https://community.esri.com/ideas/10710 ) as well as another person (https://community.esri.com/ideas/10900 ) I think that ESRI should merge them all together.
Yes our field crews are asking for it also.
ESRI - What map does not have a scale bar shown?
Check this out - Trek2There app released by Esri Labs:
Some details regarding integration of Trek2There with Collector and Explorer are available here: https://blogs.esri.com/esri/arcgis/2016/12/22/introducing-trek2there/

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