HI all

I see on Android 4.2.16 is available, with a bunch op GPS permissions one has to accept.

  • Any idea what this is about?
  • Has anyone had issues so far with this new version?

Because of the Facebook fiasco, many companies are updating their privacy policies, not just DJI. It really is just telling you what access the DJI GO 4 app needs to function fully. I recommend you turn on access to all 4 options as they are necessary for the GPS to operate correctly.
I have had a number of flights on the new version and there are no issues at all.

Have you not seen the news over the past month? They've been selling millions of FB users personal data to marketing companies - the CEO of FB has been pulled over hot coals by politicians on both sides of the pond. New security regulations are being implemented and probably one massive fine!

I will not be updating to the new app . How much information do you have to supply before it becomes spying...and since DJI are Chinese...free information  for their government !!!

More likely it ties in with the new European legislation on privacy that became enforceable on 25th May.

Lol, What would the Chinese want or do with the flight information from a small town in upstate New York, or wherever ever you live. Possible apple or corn harvest numbers? You overly paranoid people crack me up.

This version appeared for iOS on may 19.
I think it has a serious map visibility problem, I started a topic for it, unfortunately no one from DJI responded..

If you think they don't already have the information you're naive.
This is just notifying you of the permissions that the updated app will have.  Luckily, I have a dedicated device for flying.  the only information on it is the flight info.  I even used a dummy email address for google.
