Click => [ Bluetooth Range ]

If you are considering switching to X-PAD on an Android data collector, you might be concerned about Bluetooth range.

Purpose built devices like the Mesa 3, RT4, Surveyor 2 enjoy a 1,000 foot range in open environments to a Zoom 90 robot with a Long Range Bluetooth handle. X-PAD on a $350 Google Pixel 4a phone has over a 1,900 foot range.

In this short video, I point the robot at a prism on the back of my pickup, then drive down the road with a standard Google Pixel 4a phone in my breast pocket; inside the truck; with the engine on; driving away from the robot.

Not only does the collector never skip a measurement, but I can get out of my truck, break the connection, then search/find the robot from scratch. It just works.

There is a short bonus segment at the video end showing how the cameras used to make the video are attached to the robot.
