manually entered geopoint location not saved

As suggested here (which we have successfully used in past), the Survey123 GeoPoint field allows manual entry via clicking the map, then clicking the lat/long values at bottom, then entering correct lat/long values, then clicking the checkbox at right.

 

We followed this procedure, however, last week in a teacher institute (using latest Survey123 for iOS, v2.3.29?), and the manual values we entered were not saved, i.e., when the record was submitted the manually entered lat/long was replaced by a value on the map—sometimes a wildly inaccurate value.

 

I am trying to determine whether (a) this manual geopoint procedure still works, and (b) what the workflow should be to make sure it works correctly. We typically do these surveys with K-12 students, and some of our data locations are known with relatively high accuracy we wish to maintain, thus we'd like to make it work again via some relatively straightforward method.

 

Many thanks,
