I would like to see more options to capture the gps data (points).
Currently (when walking) only each 5 meters a point will be captured. In our case this is not sufficient.
So, I would like to be able to change that:
in a time frequency (like every x seconds capture a point)
a distance frequency (like every x meter capture a point).
I agree, it would be nice to have more control over the location tracking behaviour in FMA. The current 5 meter resolution (when walking) is not sufficient for our solution.
In Collector an updateInterval was supported in the WebMap option for locationTracking, see: https://developers.arcgis.com/web-map-specification/objects/locationTracking/
@CollinKleiboerto clarify, you are referring to the location tracking capabilities of Field Maps correct?
We introduced a way to turn off the batter optimization tracking mode on iOS a few months ago and it's coming to Android in a couple weeks. When this in-app toggle is off, points are captured every 1 meter and the collection is independent of any activity detection. Does this meet your requirements?
Hi Aaron (@AaronPulver),
Thank you for your message.
I think we can use this feature quite well. It's not as luxurious as I proposed, but it will definitely help us getting more 'dense' tracks.
So thank you and keep me posted when it's available for Android, please.
This is now available as an in-app setting called Battery Optimization on Field Maps Android and iOS 21.4. When you turn this off, points are collected independent of activity changes at a 1 meter interval.
