Catalyst DA1 and Android 10 issues with Field Maps

Jump to Best Answer
  • 1.  Catalyst DA1 and Android 10 issues with Field Maps

    Posted 06-22-2022 12:36
    I'm using a Catalyst DA1 with a Samsung Galaxy S4 tablet that is running Android 10. I have no problem when connecting with TMM and finding satellites.  When I go to Field Maps it says that it can't locate a GPS signal.  I used a Catalyst DA2 with the tablet and there were no issues.  Then I used the DA1 with an Android phone running Android 12 and there were no issues.  Is there an issue with the DA1 and Android 10?

    Hi Andrew,

    The Catalyst DA1 is not supported directly from Field Maps, you should enable TMM as the Mock Location provider in your Android settings and use the Integrated Location Provider in Field Maps. See here for more information on location sharing in Field Maps.

    Best regards,

    I have all those settings completed on the TMM and in Field Maps.  The RTK is fixed to sub-foot in the TMM.  When I then open Field Maps and open to one of my maps it is not able to locate the GPS and Field Maps freezes up. 

    I tried opening Field Maps first and then opening TMM.  Then the location in Field Maps bounced around with no better that 80ft accuracy.

    Andrew,

    Please confirm that you have Developer options enabled on your S4 and that you have selected Trimble Mobile Manager as the Mock location app, to reiterate these are the steps to follow:

    • First you need to open TMM and connect to the DA1.
    • Next go to the 'Application settings' in TMM and ensure that the 'Share location' is setup and enabled. In this step you must select Trimble Mobile Manager as your Mock location provider.
    • Next, with TMM still running and connected to the DA1, go to Esri Field Maps, click on your profile and select 'Provider', then select 'Integrated' (do NOT select DA1 if it is available in the list)
    You should find that you are receiving accurate positions in Field Maps if you follow these steps. One thing to check is that Google Maps is showing an accurate position, this will show that TMM is feeding the location to location services on the device, which is what the 'Integrated' option on Field Maps uses.

    Mark,

    I have completed the steps as you have laid them out and when I open Field Maps it says GPS location not available.  Google Maps showed an accurate position.

    As a test I tried using ArcCollector and the accuracy was 11 inches.

    Andrew,

    I believe you are missing something here. You NEED to have the slider bar on within TMM and running. That is the first step. Assuming that yo have TMM location sharing on already and Mock Locations Enabled within your android developer settings, then you can open ESRI Field maps. Again, like Mark said, you want to select internal versus the DA1. I run this setup all the time for trainings and support purposes. You DO NOT want to open Field Maps first. Also, make sure that TMM and Field Maps are both up-to-date. I believe there was a Field maps update in the last 2 weeks. Lastly, be sure that Google and Google Chrome are both up-to-date via the Play store as well. I have found that when Chrome is not up-to-date, that it can cause login issues.
