Last year Collector came out with a release that allowed you to collect the metadata from an external GNSS receiver. I was wondering if that same workflow is possible through Survey123?
It looks like not yet from reading this post:
Survey123 for ArcGIS
If using external GNSS receivers, metadata such as 'Receiver', 'PDOP','HDOP','VDOP','Fix Type','Number of Satellites' or 'Fix time' will not be persisted in the geopoint. Storing this metadata from the external receiver is a feature that may be considered for upcoming releases.
It might be a good idea to suggest this idea at ArcGIS Ideas or Issues · Esri/Survey123Community · GitHub
I was hoping the Add GNSS Metadata Fields to a hosted feature service would work on a Survey123 hosted feature service. The fields get added, but I wasn't able to populated them like I am in Collector, perhaps because the geopoint still isn't storing this data?
