Field Maps Search string Axxxxxx and Bxxxxxx returning 'Coordinate' results

Field Maps 23.1.0 on iOS

We've had our field crews complaining that searching by asset number (format: A123456) is returning results in Antarctica.

Rudimentary testing shows that any length number, prefixed by A (or B, but not C, D et al) will return these 'coordinate' results. The correct, exact match search result appears below these results.


Is this something I've done in the search or geocoder settings, or a feature of a recent Field Maps version?


We're also experiencing BUG-000149944 from 

So I'm thinking there were a few breaking changes at least to the iOS app.


Logging a support case now, but adding details here in case others are experiencing the same - or for you to confirm this happens for you!

Generally, the behavior of search functionality in every ESRI mobile app (ArcGIS app, Collector app, Field Maps app) on iOS has been inconsistent. I have been seeing this since the year 2012.

  • Disable address searches on a map? Sometimes the app still returns address results.
  • Sometimes searches against layers work, sometimes they do.

My experience with Android is limited.

Hoping this gets fixed permanently at some point.
