Hi all,

What functionality would be lost using a Wifi only ipad? I was running my iPhone 6S in airplane mode the other day using my P3P and didnt notice any obvious issues, I assume the drone itself has GPS built in and uses that rather than the apple device right?

Thanks,

R

That's my understanding as well. Your external device must have GPS to use either of those functions.

The "Follow Me" capability has to have a GPS-based device (external from the Phantom) to know where you are and follow you.

Dynamic Home Point is kind of intuitive - to establish a "pathway" between your new Home Point and the Phantom, there must be two GPS devices - one in your Phantom and one in your external device.

Makes sense, is the dynamic home point always enabled assuming you have a gps enabled device on the controller?

It used be. But I think they have changed it in the later GO updates.
I think you can only change home points on request and its no longer dynamic.

Without a GPS enabled device you can change the home point to the Phantom's position at anytime by tapping the home point icon.  if you only have a WiFi only enabled iPad then follow me isn't available. But you can use your cell phone if it's on the DJi approved devices and then you should get follow me.
