The app is very resource intensive; both in software and hardware. The iPad Mini 3 lacks the power (1.3 dual-core) to run the app sufficiently. If you upgraded to a new iPad/iPad Pro, you would not get these errors. I’ve never gotten any OS or GO 4 errors with an iPad Pro 10.5 cellular (2.4 6-core). The newest iPad Pros are 8-core @ 2.5Ghz, which should allow you to run the app for years to come as it develops. Plus you’d get the benefit of proper color representation, brighter display, and better framing/focus.

Really? It works now with the latest GO 4? I think it's version 4.3.10...

What model DJI drone are you using? I have the M2P, and DJI claims it doesn't support this function, so will be happy if that's no longer the case with the M2P!

Hi, sorry for the inconvenience caused. Can you please try to change a location? So we can check. Also, about the second warning, this is actually an app feature, which can detect the usage of the CPU for the mobile device. This prompt will pop up when the CPU of the mobile device is fully loaded. The decoding performance of image transmission and signal transmission will be affected and the iOS device will warm up. It is recommended to prevent the mobile device from direct sunlight with sunshade when the mobile device is used in summer. Otherwise, the mobile device may warm up the CPU may underlock or be fully loaded, which affects flying experiences. I hope this will help. Thank you.

Hi Natalia, I have tried in loads of different locations still the same result, the app worked ok in November now it does not on 3 different Apple devices, the ability to change the home point is essential when walking. Who's map data do you use for the mini map?. All other GPS Apps (Google maps, Waze, Apple maps) work, yours does not, so it looks like your app is at fault because the others work ok.
