  • Since LandVision™ Mobile is cloud-based, all of the information that is captured during your property visits is automatically synced back to your desktop in real-time or as soon as you regain connectivity.
    • There may be a 5 minute synch delay depending on cellular coverage or wifi connectivity

The mobile app was designed for usage on a phone device. Please know that if you try to use the app on a tablet, that functionality may not work as efficiently and it is recommended to use the browser of your tablet to sign in to LandVision similar to how you would sign in on a desktop computer.
