When the Go app first switched to the Here maps, I didn't think it was all that bad. Now this is the map I get at home, in a neighborhood, plenty of trees, streets, etc. It does not even show streets or anything, in any of the three options.  Using Go app v3.14 I think.  I'll check later.  Does DJI understand how much we hate these maps?

Where are you located?   Android or IOS?  I get a nice satellite image of the terrain with a road overlay.  I selected hybrid in the layers options.   IOS DGI Go 3.1.11

As I stated in the original post, I have no details in any of the three options.

Where I am, the satellite views are around 7 years old, how useless is that.

Depends on how quickly things are changing.

In this case, there is an entire horse-racing complex built on land near me, up and running with vast amounts of buildings and infrastructure. Yet on here maps it is a cow paddock.

You gotta have internet access when you open the app to download the map in a new area. Sometimes your cache is cleared and you have to download the map again.

I was sitting in my Lazy Boy at home. I had internet.  I just could not get it to load the map until I rebooted the whole thing.   Of course no problems loading Google Maps.  (sigh)

Ah well just upgraded DJI Go (v3.1.12) and voila...no maps. Now I know it gets foggy here but not today.

maps where art thou

maps where art thou


So after quick check of cached maps, wifi working, check layered view & OP complaints about same issue, thought I would redownload from App Store. Anybody have a similar problem and did you resolve it?
Actually the only thing I haven't ched is the 'Calibrate Map Coordinates (For China Mainland). Now that might just work given I'm not in China.

You need internet in order to have the map cache and updated. But it does not work occasionally even you have internet.

Yep internet OK and reckon your spot on about now you see it, now you don't. P3P still flies though so no worries.

Happy to reside in Alberta Canada, where the Go app map remains in good order. ;-)
