Yes you can replace it with the new version.
I would guess DJI modified it for a reason, so it should be better, but if you don't have any compass issues then I would leave things alone.
Maybe someone with both can tell us if it is a different compass or just the old one with a plastic shield attached ?

Hi piertex,

Sorry for my lateness but have you replaced it yet?
Actually we can't use new Compass V2 with old version Phantom2.
Do you have any Compass issue?

That would mean the new Version Phantoms are different in hardware when the new compass dont fit the older phantoms. So its not only a shielded old version compass.

Where do I buy the new compass?  I am having calibration issues.  Very hard to calibrate.  I haven't been able to find anywhere online that sells the new compass.

DJI_Autumn...So are you saying that the new version compass that I have ordered for my DJI Phantom Vision 2 plus should not be fitted?

I'm also interested in the answer to this as I've just ordered the new one from eBay for my v2+, I wasn't having any problems but i figured for 17.00 it was worth the upgrade. I hope it works..
