I've browsed most of the information on the new DJI goggles, but can't seem to find anything on whether or not the active head tracking works on the P4..   In the demos, they show the Mavic.   Does head tracking work with the regular P4, or do you need a Pro or Advanced model ?

Off topic but will it work with the supposed new P4 firmware?
When it expected?

Not sure when the ETA is, but new firmware won't disable this functionality.

When flying with a P4P do you have to connect the goggles to the controller with a cable?

Maybe I'm reading something wrong, but I'm not sure how you would connect a P3 Standard.
The goggles, for all intents and purposes, replace your phone/tablet. On the P3S, the phone/tablet connects via WiFi, not a cable.
The only model capable of connecting to the goggles wirelessly is the Mavic.

The goggles manual today has been amended, this indicates that head tracking will no longer work with the P4 at present.

The P4 does have Tap Fly, but currently functions like Tripod, Terrain Follow etc aren't available.

I was going to mention that, this is the most current chart with the available functions:

You are correct, the P3S and the P34K cannot use the Goggles due to their solely WiFi connectivity. The Mavic connects to the wirelessly via OccuSync. The only P3 models that could use the Goggles are the P3A and the P3P when you install the HDMI module.

Will both head flight and gimbal tracking be possible with the P4 at some point for sure, or is the appearance of these features not guarunteed?

From what I understand, the  firmware update that's necessary for the P4 to use those features wasn't discarded, but we do not have a new ETA for the firmware either. If you have the P4 now and wanted the Goggles strictly for that head tracking function, I would hold off on getting them until the feature comes out for them. Store availablility would most likely be better as well.

Currently, all the P4's other functions will work when used with the Goggles. If the head/gimbal tracking was a 'plus' and just wanted to have that FPV Goggle experience then the purchase of the DJI Goggles would still be valid.

I can only speculate that there were some unforseen delays with the necessary P4 firmware update for those functions. Unfortunately there's no other information on this currently.

Thanks for the info, I can appreciate you may not be privy to every detail.  

Is there someone at DJI who could at least definitively say if there is a possibility the head-tracking features might never make it to the P4?

Head-tracking is much of the appeal to me. If it will definitely be supported in the current generation at -some- point, that goes towards the timing of when I would buy them. Live view alone has appeal, but less so if that's all I might have until the next drone.

I can try and see if there's a better difinitive than what I provided, but it would take some time since we're going into the weekend.

Hi Jamie
If you new goggles are not going to provide head tracking for the phantom 4 then why remove head tracking that was working when using the Avegant Glyph googles. This function was removed by DJI on the 24th of April. This is totally wrong and DJI needs to sort this crap out. Your customers will rebel.
