I think I remember seeing in a video that the triangle when using the motion controller that the triangle indicates the direction in which the drone is heading.  Of course I could be wrong as I don't own the Avata 2 so can confirm that is the case.  Hopefully, somebody will come along and say that is it or that I'm wrong and what it actually is.

Shows which way the drone is heading.  If you hear something out of your left ear while the drone is flying forward, you'll know which way to turn the drone to go to your left.

Look at the thumbnail in the post in the above link.  The pilot is sitting on the bench and the drone is pointing to his left and slightly to the rear so if he continue ahead with that flight, should miss him by going slightly behind him.

I can assure you that:
- is not the drone's compass;
- It's not pointing north;
- It's not indicating the direction of the aircraft;
- it's not showing the home point;
- it's not the direction in which the drone is heading;
- Nobody in DJI is knows what is the triangle pointing!!!

It will be very useful if is show us the same that we have on others DJI products, like this picture, showing the position of the drone relative to our position.

Thank you for patiently waiting. When the DJI avata 2 is used with the Goggles 3 in the EU region, there will be an aircraft attitude display. This is a Geo-Awareness function in the EU region. It is made to comply with the EU C1 certification requirements. The white arrow icon represents the aircraft. The icon will show the direction of the aircraft. Please note that this is only applicable within the EU region and does not apply in other regions (including Mainland China). Hope this helps.

Dear Paladin, what you are saying only makes sense if you told us “ the direction of the aircraft relative to a certain referencial”; what referencial is that? North??? No! The goggles??? No!
So is not showing nothing except a dancing triangle…
Please tell your engineers to follow my suggestion…
Thanks anyway

Same for me. Does not indicate where home point is, does not indicate north, does not indicate anything of value. All it does is take up display space for no purpose whatsoever. If only there was an option to remove it.

Sheesh the EU is a treasure trove of senseless & needless regulations.  Imagine the amount of hoops involved in installing a bobby in the EU?

Between having to look at a useless compass icon in our goggles and having to send our kids to school hoping every day they don't get shot, I think we're doing fine over here with regulations

Hi there. Thank you for reaching out. As of the time being, we don't have the option to disable the said feature as this is part of the EU C1 certification requirement. We will continue to gather feedback on this concern and forward it to our respective team for attention. Please note that this will not affect other regions, only in the EU region. Thank you for your understanding.

Well, I see no valid reason for this to be a european C1 requirement!

2019/45 says:
"be equipped with a geo-awareness system that provides:
(a) an interface to load and update data containing information on airspace limitations related to UA position and altitude imposed by the geographical zones, as defined by Article 15 of Implementing Regulation (EU) 2019/947, which ensures that the process of loading or updating such data does not degrade its integrity and validity;
(b) a warning alert to the remote pilot when a potential breach of airspace limitations is detected; and
(c) information to the remote pilot on the UA's status as well as a warning alert when its positioning or navigation systems cannot ensure the proper functioning of the geo-awareness system;
"

So geoawareness requires the drone to warn the user when his drone is about to breach some restricted airspace, but does NOT require showing an empty map always pointing north with an triangle icon representing drone and some red pixels showing those  restricted airspaces.
Please allow removal of this. Or change it into a useable tool such as found on Mavic/Mini/Air devices.

I’m currently in the EU region and I see the same as everyone else - just a translucent box with an arrow that seems to point north. Am I supposed to be seeing like an artificial horizon like with my mini 3 ?

I don't know what the problem is. For me, the drone's compass readings are correct. Dorn is flying north and the pointer is up. The drone is flying south and the pointer is pointing down.

All it means to me is, if you can see it, you're in the EU. If not, then yu're NOT in the EU. LOL.
