    Known Issues

    Orbit Mobile App (Windows OS)

    • Maps: If multiple basemaps (map services or .tpk) are configured, they must all use the same spatial reference.
    • Maps: You can currently only display a basemap while offline (disconnected from ArcGIS for Server or ArcGIS Online) using tile packages (.tpk) if the coordinate system is set at WGS 1984 Web Mercator (EPSG 3857 formerly known as Esri WKID 102100.)
    • Maps: Operational layers will not display when in a disconnected state.
    • Support: When using a Surface tablet, a message may appear indicating you do not have an email program when you click Support, even if you do have an email program installed. After dismissing the message, you can still complete the support e-mail as normal.
    • Touch Capabilities: For best experience with a touch display, we recommend using a stylus. If you do not want to use a stylus, you can improve your experience by adjusting your screen resolution to a lower setting, such as 1024x768.
    • Working Offline: A data connection is required for searching, identifying, or copying attributes from features, as well as address searches.
