I would like to use and external GPS with Web AppBuilder Smart Editor. I am aware that WAB relies on HTML5 Geolocation as opposed to native apps that do not.
Bad Elf GPS receivers somehow automatically insert themselves to replace the on-board GPS on iPads. I need to know if there are any utilities that can be used to substitute another bluetooth GPS - in this case a Geneq SX Blue III
Any other approaches? Thanks people.
Hi @KeithGerhartz1 ,
In Smart Editor you can now use a My Location Coordinates attribute action to collect your current location information when collecting data: Smart Editor widget—ArcGIS Web AppBuilder | Documentation
If the My Location widget is also active in your application (and it will also work if the My Location widget is not active), it will use your browser's (device's) current location information.
Yes, if your external GPS is used to update your mobile device location, the Smart Editor will pickup that device location and can write it into a field if you setup a Coordinate Attribute Actions with My Location.
Hi @MichaelLayne1 Based on what you need I would recommend using Survey 123 or QuickCapture which will allow you to collect all this information along with the location from the GPS.
