FieldGenius for Android Supported Data Collectors

1280x720FieldGenius for Android Supported Android Data Collectors

MicroSurvey FieldGenius for Android can be installed on a wide range of Tablets and larger format smart phones.  The requirement is that Android version 8.0 or higher is on the controller as well as it being 64-bit.

NOTE: It has been noticed that Samsung devices could have very inconsistent Bluetooth issues between different models and Android updates, so it is recommended not to use such devices with FieldGenius for Android. Also, as of version 2.5, some of the Samsung are no longer compatible with FGA because the hardware does not support a 64 bit component.

There are many manufacturers of Android tablets with many different hardware configurations. Given a large number of hardware devices and the rapidly changing hardware components and configurations, it is not possible for MicroSurvey to test the FieldGenius for Android on all devices.  We have designed the software to support a wide range of common hardware configurations.  MicroSurvey has tested some of the industry's most common hardened field data collection devices and has listed them as tested and supported. We also get reports from customers on other devices and the performance of the software on these devices. Manufactures may replace components or upgrade the firmware on the android devices after we have tested a device or registered a report that could adversely affect the performance on a listed device.  

The minimum tablet requirements to run FieldGenius for Android are listed below.  These requirements may be updated at any time to reflect improvements in the software to make it compatible with more Android devices or new updates that demand an increase in minimum hardware requirements.

Status:

  • Tested - MicroSurvey has physically tested the listed device.
  • Reported - Customers, dealers and partners have tested FieldGenius for Android on a device and provided a status on performance and any observed Issues.  MicroSurvey has not verified the reported performance with any independent testing.
  • Test Cloud - MicroSurvey has the ability to test the software in a simulated environment on different hardware tablets.  The test cloud devices show that the device installs the software and displays the screen UI properly. The FieldGenius for Android navigates properly from all screens as expected.  MicroSurvey has not verified the reported performance with any independent testing.
