I own both MM and MA2 and recently noticed that I am unable to "enlarge' the map (mapbox) to swap with the camera view, with DJI Fly app. I can enlarge from an icon to a small map, but it ends there. I have reloaded the app and tested on both aircraft. Anyone else have this issue or solution? I call myself searching threads, etc. But unable to find solution.
I learned that I have come to depend on this map. It may be an inadvert change that I made, but would like to get it back Thanks in advance for any feedback. BTW: Using the same phone, Note 8

I have the same problem since the last update. I made a thread about it, search 'can't expand mini map anymore'. That happened after latest DJI Fly update on a Huawei Mate 20 x with DJI Mavic Mini, which worked flawlessly up until then.

I have the same problem on Android.  Tried with 2 different phones, pixel 2 (officially supported) and Poco f1.  Thumbnail gets enlarged to mini map and real time location does not work.  This needs to be fixed!  I know you're supposed to fly VLOS but the map position is mandatory backup.

Just tested the firmware update with my Ipad and all is OK with IOS. Map enlarges to stamp, then full screen and swaps with camera view. Checked again, with Android, not working. Same firmware upgrade. DJI, any help, feedback?

Thank you for asking.
I updated to the Fly App Android V 1.1.2 from the play store, update May 15, 2020.
Hmmm, odd. I fly with the Samsung Note 8, 64 bit, Android 9. It was working fine until I upgraded last week. I have been using the phone with 1.1.0 version on MM and MA2 with no issues. Now I am unable to increase screen size (swap with camera view). Thanks for the feedback. Let me know if you have any ideas, thoughts.

I usually flush any cache & settings via the app management post upgrade you dont lose out since the uograde usually resets your RTH etc. anyway.  Have you tried completely removing the app & replacing via play store.

I tried reinstalling DJI Fly. Didn't change anything.

Just checked using the mini & despite a battery update all working as it should so no issues with either mini ir Aur 2 connected. Be useful if posts advised Android version to assist DJI investigate reported problems.

Thanks for assistance. Yes, I have uninstalled the DJIFly app. Then reinstalled with same version 1.1.2, through the phone, no change. Also through the DJI Assistant for Mavic (directly to aircraft). No change.
I use a Samsung Note 8, 64bit, Android version 9 with success flying the MM and MA2 thru DJIFly app, prior to update. Thanks in advance for any thoughts or suggestions.

Good you got an update but short on detail, was it specific to Android 9 or specific devices, chipset   Hopefully its not too long for the fix.

Yes, short on details, but they acknowledge the issue, where it did not exist before. The Samsung Note 8 is on their compatability list and was working well, up to the last firmware update. There are other bugs and requested improvements, so I expect they will bundle a fix, upgrades and then post it. I'll look for it when I see it coming. I can work around it until then. I have a Mavic Air that I enjoy flying. Thanks for the follow-up. Enjoy your flying.

This remains an issue. The inability to see a full map, when you loss VLOS is critical.  This is happening in Android version. Please update firmware for safety. Initial firmware was not a problem. Than you in advance.

I am a new pilot, just got Mavic Air 2 and had first few flights. Absolutely love it. Only issue I am having is this one, I can not get the map view to load. Haven't gone too far yet so hasn't been a huge issue but longer term I would really like to be able to activate map. I updated all firmware on drone and controllers (not sure about batteries?) and the DJI Fly app with latest version but still having the issue. I click the map icon on the iPhone 12 Pro and nothing happens.

Sorry for your map issue. Troubleshooting: What version of DJI app do you have installed? Try to reinstall? Have you tried another device (phone or tablet)? Is there a map in the lower left hand corner?
