Using an external GPS unit with Survey123

Hi All,


Just wondering if anybody has used an external GPS unit in conjunction with Survey123?

There doesn't seem to be anywhere to select a COM port within the app, nor is there an option to define that in the Connect app.


Collector appears to have an input option for positioning. If Survey123 doesn't have it currently, are there plans to add this functionality in future releases? I have been promoting Survey123 and Collector internally, but I am a bit concerned that this functionality (or lack of it) may be a deal breaker for some of our users.


Any advice or similar experiences would be greatly appreciated.
