I am taking baby steps with Collector & Dashboard.  So far I am liking the capabilities.

In particular, I want to showcase to my organisation the capabilities of the tracking functionality.

I have added a tracking layer to my web-map.  Now I would like to simulate multiple field crew staff roaming about in the field.

Has anyone worked out how to achieve this?

Some ideas I had:

1. I saw in the Beta Geoevent processor, that there is a simulator to do this.  However, I want to keep this all on ArcGIS Online and setup times for the Beta GeoEvent processor might not be feasible.

2. Get some staff to roam about in the field.  (not feasible at all).

3. Find an iphone App that lets me spoof the location.  I saw one for Android where you could feed in a GPS track and it would then spoof the location of the Android GPS to match that track.  I have access to a few iPhones, but they cannot be jailbroken.

Any ideas on how to achieve this?

I am not sure how you will be able to pull of simulating the GPS moving around without using the app on an xcode project and leveraging the simulator and having it use a precooked gpx file without jailbreaking the device.
