How to add / update the GPS location of a sample

While out on the field at your chosen sample site, go on to your phone app, select the sample that you want to add the GPS location of, and click on the ‘Map’ tab.

Then click the three dots in the top right, and ‘Add location’. 

You can then move the map around until the pin is at the location of your sample site. Your location will be shown as a blue dot on the map. 

Click ‘Done’ when you feel happy that the location of the pin is correct. You can then add activities under the sample as normal, or repeat these instructions for another sample site. 

Remember to ‘Sync’ your data into your account when you’ve finished adding locations or recording data, to make sure all of your activities are saved. 

*NOTE: You may need to wait 30 seconds or so to let the map settle as it works out your location, especially if you don’t have much signal in your field. 

If you have absolutely no signal in your field, you will need to load the map before leaving the office, so that your phone can load your farm’s map data in advance.

If you set the location in the wrong place, just click ‘update sample location’ and move the pin to the correct location.
