On Android 10, you have to select the GPS button to get an updated location. On Collector app as soon as you open the app it snaps to the current location.

Not a huge issue but would be good to fix.

Hi @SteveTaylor6 - with the convergence of Explorer and Collector into Field Maps, we did not want to change the default behavior expected for either app. So if you open a map that is read-only, it should open to the default extent that you authored the map to.

If you open a map that you can edit, it should open to your current GPS location so that it establishes the GPS connection (especially for external receivers) before you start collection. 

Opinions vary on the most effective method for opening the map. We'd like feedback on this moving forward. Please share your thoughts!

Thanks,

Jeff

Hi Jeff, best to locate automatically on maps you can edit. Also this legacy bug from Collector on Android has shown up on Field Maps.
