TopoDroid is an Android app for cave surveying.
Supported data acquisition devices: DistoX, DistoX2, SAP5, and BRIC4.
Survey data can also be entered manually.
Version changes and old apks
TopoDroid requires the following permissions:
MANAGE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE: to save survey files
INTERNET (only if you need to install translations of the use manual)
In addition certain features are disabled if the following permissions are not granted:
CAMERA: in-cave pictures
RECORD_AUDIO: voice notes
ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION: entrances geolocation
If you experience problems running TopoDroid make sure these permissions are granted to the app.
DistoX and SAP5 important note
To use a measuring device with TopoDroid, the device must have been previously paired with Android.
TopoDroid has several BT connection settings: if you experience data transfer problems with the DistoX try setting "insecure" socket (see the user manual for details).
Automatic Station Name Assignment
It has been reported that the automatic station name assignment sometimes gets screwy. Apparently this is a problem with the caching of the app by the Android system. If it happens, close the app and clear the system app cache (with the Settings app). Then restart TopoDroid.
TopoDroid and the other speleoapps are free and ad-free, and will remain so. Android operating system and its SDK are fast moving on. New hardware is needed to continue the app development and to keep it up to date.
