Every time I go to add a new feature it jumps to my location. Is there a way to disable this feature, so that I can add points all over the map without jumping to my location every time?

Turning off location services on your device seems to be the only way to stop Collector jumping to your current location when trying to collect a new feature, when that feature is a point. Collecting lines and polygons seems to stick to where you've navigated to on the map, not your current location, unless you press the "My Location" button.

You can collect features by tapping on the map following this workflow:

Thanks Russell, we are able to collect points all over the map no problem, but the jumping to home location is a bit annoying. It looks like Pete Crosier's solution below might be the best bet.
