Hello

I am using samsung note 8. In the fight log its not showing location despite getting good satellites. Also, its showing wrong top altitude. I have just done few tests and not flown much but noticed these issues. Any suggestion? Have uninstalled and reinstalled the qpp but still same issues. Picture attached. Thanks

Top altitude is the top altitude where you launched the drone, not the most altitude that you have reached with the drone!
The gps fix can vary, try in some time, it updates.

Hi, we're sorry for the inconvenience caused. Did you try to sync the flight records to the cloud to see if there is any luck? Also, may I know if the app is on the latest version? Thanks.

Please see my first message. Using Samsung note 8. My other drones work well. If this drone cannot work on this phone I do not have any other phone.

Hi vibs31, for the top altitude, you may refer to Alex B's suggestion in 2#. Regarding the Map Loading, may I have the App version and your DJI account? We'll forward to our engineers to check, thank you!

I am having the same "issue" and I do suspect that the reason for that is not having my Location turned on on my phone. My Top Altitude shows -34.1m despite I live close to the sea and was more likely +34m above the sea level. In the column where location probably meant to be shown it says Map Loading however when I click on the details of the flight it loads a correct map. I guess that's when it takes GPS data from the AC records. It would make sense if the Top Altitude reads data from the AC too as there is no reason having Location turned on on the phone during the flight (saves battery, flying with RC only etc.)
I have also just upgraded to the last version of  DJI Go 4 v4.3.10 (719-googlePlay) but it didn't effect the shown data.
So I just did a test flight with my Location turned on on my Android 8.0 (Galaxy S8) and it made no difference. So my assumption was wrong as it still shows Map Loading. Interestingly enough my Top Altitude went up to -22.0m despite I am only about 10m above sea level.  There is definitely some glitch with the app and the way it reads Altitude. Please fix it. Thank you.

Hi
I did the first flight with the Zoom few minutes ago and I had the same issue but as soon as I connect the iPad I used to the home wi-fi (I don’t use wi-fi, hotspot with the phone, etc while flying if not strictly necessary to reload a map) and after opening the Go app, in one minute I had the location fixed.
Could be the map not properly cached ? Did you tried to make a flight with the phone/device connected to the internet in order to align your position with the map ?

I have tried android app using home WIFI and still having same issues and it says maps loading. Tried syncing it several times but no luck. Tried to uninstall the app and reinstall it but still showing map loading. Tried to fly at a different location but same. I used my wife ipad and logged in and it shows location on ipad. So clearly there is an issue with android app and DJI mentioned before that it will be fixed in next update but even after updating the andoird app yesterday no change. Hopefully DJI will be able to fix this.

At this stage you are definitely  right, so sad for that
Hope this issue will be fixed soon.
I’ll check time to time if so

thanks Susan for letting us know that the team is aware of the issue and that they are working on it..
I am not sure if it's realed but as mentioned earlier, the Top Altitude seems to be calculated wrong as well, as I am always in neagtive numbers and also my Footprints suddenly show USA flag while I haven't left New Zealand, so unless Trump claimed NZ as another state of US there's clearly something wrong.
Thank you..

Hi tomaash, just to verify, do the flight records sync successfully? And may I know what's the current version of the App? Please backup all data and reinstall the App to see whether the issue remains. If not, please kindly offer the screenshot and DJI account, we'll double check, thank you!

Hi Susan. All the flight records sync successfully. Not quite sure what they are syncing with though. Can I access them somewhere online or via the Assisstent?
My current version of the DJI Go 4 is v4.3.11(722-googlePlay) which seems to be the latest.. Updated since my previous post. No change.
I can try to uninstall/install the app but not sure how to back up the data. Is syncing it with the cloud not enough? Please let me know.
here's a screenshot of the Flight record front page..

will PM you my DJI account name..

here is my update after the firmware .300 upgrade..

* FOOTPRINTS
fixed..
it now correctly shows that i have only flown in NZ

* TOP ALTITUDE
fixed..
it now correctly shows my Top Altitude however it seems a bit confusing that the Flight List shows Max Alt meaning a height (vertical distance) above the Home Point while the Top Altitude is actual above the sea (ASLA) level altitude..  why can't we see ASLA in Flight List, for Home Point and Max?

* FLIGHT LIST Location in the Date column
not fixed..
it still shows Map Loading where, I believe, the name of the location should be shown.. it can't be that hard to determine the name (or whatever it is trying to load) from the GPS data when online

Thanks for your response DJI..
