DJI is planning to update the map services for some of its drone flight apps. If you are not using the latest version of the app/remote controller, you may not be able to view the map correctly. Here’s what you need to know…

According to DJI, older versions of its drone flight apps may not display the accurate location information of the aircraft and the surrounding area because of incompatibility with an imminent overhaul of the mapping services. As such, the tech giant is urging operators to update their apps and remote controllers before November 25, 2022.

To provide a better service experience, we will soon update the map services for some apps. It is recommended to update the app/remote controller before November 25, 2022, to continue to benefit from regular feature updates and performance improvements. Continuing using older versions of the DJI app will negatively impact map display. We apologize for any inconvenience you may experience.
