    Im trying to achieve the same effect as the Google Playground AR stickers that I use with my Pixel2. You choose a sticker, the model instantly appears in and the middle and drops itself on the ground. There is no tracking that needs to take place, it finds the ground instantly and every time. If I'm understanding correctly, this should be achievable with ARFoundation since it is ARCore?

    All the samples I've used have taken a lot of time to detect planes and features points and the infinity plane isnt reliable. Is it possible to achieve this with ARFoundation, and if so, how?

    I'd solve your problem by using plane detection. I believe that you can get an altitude reading from the GPS but that it's inaccurate and would at best work outside. Scanning the ground plane is done in no time.
