Hi,

I'm building out an integration with Field Maps and I would like to open up Field Maps and set the map center on a coordinate. I found this article that shows how to use the center parameter to set that, but it doesn't seem to be working for me. See the link below. When I click on the link shown below, it opens the correct map, but it zooms me to my current GPS location. Is there something wrong with my link, or is there a setting I need to change in Field Maps to get this working as desired? Thanks!

Yes it does.  It centers just south of the Esri campus.  Does it work if you disable your GPS?  I have mine set to only use GPS while using the app and it is still centering me on your location.  Do you have the latest update of Field Maps?  I'm using iOS.

Thanks for the response, Andrew. I already have referenceContext=center in the URL, but I must be missing something like that. I just made the map publicly available. When you click on the link I provided above, does it zoom you to Redlands, CA in Field Maps? It doesn't for me.

Andrew,

That did the trick. When I turned off my GPS, then it zoomed me to the correct location. It looks like a bug with Field Maps. I'm on the latest version of Field Maps on Android. Can you submit that as a bug?

Thanks for your help!

I'd be curious if it is in fact a bug or as-designed.  It might be worth a call to Support to ask them.
