The steps required to utilize a high accuracy external GPS with Field Maps are significantly more complicated than in Collector.
We use Trimble R1 pucks and with Collector no third party app was required. We could connect to the puck and set all configurations directly within Collector settings.
In Field Maps, we are back to having to use a third party app (Trimble Mobile Manager) in addition to the Field Maps settings. This is a significantly more cumbersome workflow for users, and increases the likelihood that a mistake is made during set up leading to incorrectly collected data.
It would be great for us if the Collector connection workflow was migrated to Field Maps.
