Hello everyone.

We have decided to phase out the Mixed Reality Forums over the next few months in favor of other ways to connect with us.

The first way we want to connect with you is our mixed reality developer program, which you can sign up for at https://aka.ms/IWantMR.

The plan between now and the beginning of May is to clean up old, unanswered questions that are no longer relevant. The forums will remain open and usable.

On May 1st we will be locking the forums to new posts and replies. They will remain available for another three months for the purposes of searching them, and then they will be closed altogether on August 1st.

So, where does that leave our awesome community to ask questions? Well, there are a few places we want to engage with you. For technical questions, please use Stack Overflow, and tag your questions using either hololens or windows-mixed-reality. If you want to join in discussions, please do so in the HoloDevelopers Slack, which you can join by going to https://aka.ms/holodevelopers. And always feel free to hit us up on Twitter @MxdRealityDev.

Spatial mapping and bad Internet connexion problem

Hello, I have a question about spatial mapping. I make researchs in the forum's threads, I read that spatial mapping work even if your device is not connected to the Internet... but...

I have a problem, because when I don't use wifi or have a bad connexion, if I shut down the Hololens and start them again, there are 2 possibilities:

1) It won't recognize the space.

2) It recognizes the space, but anchors move completely, sometimes an object I put is like 5 meters away, which is huge.

I never have this kind of problem when I use a good connexion.

Thank you in advance for your help.


  • Anchors should only be recognized in the same space. So if you have a space in your office and set an anchor there and then the next time HoloLens turns on and thinks that it is in a different space that anchor will not show up because it is registered to a different space.

  • Thank you for the answer. The anchor show in general, but far away from where I put them...
