With the advanced computing power of the new smartphones, has anyone used one as a data collector?
I would like to connect an Android phone via Bluetooth to a Leica GS15 receiver and connect to a reference network via the phone to get RTK survey grade data.
We do a lot of survey in an areas that are sometimes fairly cumbersome to get to, the less we need to carry the better, we always have our phones with us, so if we could collect data with them it would eliminate the need to carry a separate data collector and less chance to drop an expensive piece of equipment in water/difficult terrain.
Please if you have used it let me know how far and how well it was

No. The Leica Software that runs the controller is Windows Software. It will load on either the Win CE Leica data collector or the Win 8 Panasonic Tablet. 2 Bluetooth or com channels are needed for communication with the receiver and the RTK signal.
