The app is designed to work without 3G or 4G mobile network reception, as it is expected that Stocktake Plus will be used in rather remote locations.
An internet connection is only required on first login to check your account credentials and to secure (sync) your data. After this, the app functions ‘cache-enabled’ mode, meaning you don’t need to be connected to the 3G/4G (phone) network or WiFi for it to work.
If you want to use the land type mapping spatial layer you will need to login via the website and download the map data for your lot on plan. Once download, you do not need network coverage. The app will work without the spatial layer information if you prefer not to use it, or is it not available for your area (outside Queensland).
If you want to use the app to its full potential, check that your smartphone or tablet comes with a GPS chip installed (most do). This will assist you in using the land type mapping, and in setting locations for monitoring sites and rainfall gauges.
