Thanks Olga - just what i was looking for. Will this work using NTRIP?

Thanks

Hi David,

Yes, in that case, it doesn’t matter whether you use your own base or NTRIP for corrections.

I recently returned from fieldwork, and, using the RS2, the Android + Bluetooth or iOS + TCP connection with Survey123 worked flawlessly. The Bluetooth is preferable, but its nice to have the option with iOS devices. As far as I can tell, we still can’t use iOS/TCP with ESRI Field Maps yet(?).

Thanks - looking for the budget now

Do Field Maps work on android then?

Yes, Field Maps works fine with Android devices because of the Bluetooth compatibility.

Thanks Lucas that’s good to know

Hi Lucas,

We’ve never tested ESRI Field Maps on iOS. However, if this app supports integration with receivers via TCP, there should be no issues.

Svetlan here is the link to ESRI’s connected devices web page that may offer some insight: https://doc.arcgis.com/en/field-maps/android/help/high-accuracy-data-collection.htm
