I'm currently trying to use QField on Trimble TDC600s. When I try and enable GPS position display on the map, the display clears off and leaves a single dot on it. Every other feature is working as intended including the display of position information at the bottom of the screen.

Please note: I have tried reinstalling as that seemed to fix this for at least some others in the past. This also occurs on multiple units. Additionally when I long press to turn on and off positioning, I get an error message that QField does not have permissions to positioning when turning it off, but not on.

QField version 1.3.1 QGIS version 3.10. Data layers are in a geopackage on the Trimble.


This issue appears to have been a CRS issue. It works when using WGS84 but not ESRI 120761

Per request, here is the reported issue at github.
