Have tested follow me on P4 today. "P" mode, 20 m altitude. After tapping "apply" on "follow me" window the drone keeps hovering, while showing "GPS signal strong" on the follow me window and the distance beetween me and the drone changes (most right number on the bottom telemetry string) as I moves away from it.
"S" mode - the same. The drone only moves by left stick (throttle and yaw) and do nothing while moving right one.
Anybody experienced the same?

What device are you using, for follow me the phone/tablet has to have a GPS.
The full PDF manual is in the app and explains how all the features work.
You have no extra features in Sport Mode.
All the intelligent features are available in P mode.
You can use Active Track to follow yourself as well as anyone else.

I've tested it on 2 devices: Samsung T705 tablet and Samsung S5 mini phone, both have GPS/Glonass turned on. As I said, I can see the distance between the drone and the device changed as I move away from hovering drone  - so GPS on the devices worked well.
I've read full PDF manual.
Enter IOC modes, choose "follow me", then tap "apply". The bird keeps hovering.
Active track works well.

That is strange, if you walk around does the blue circle (you) move as you move with your Android device?

Yes, the blue mark moves with my moving and distance from me and P4 changes on telemetry line, but the drone stays hovering.

If you are able to do a screen record of attempting to use follow me, I can send it to the techs and see what they say. If your device has a GPS and when you enter follow me and do not get any warning messages, it should follow you.

Mine acts the same way using a Samsung Galaxy Tab S. The camera will follow the object being tracked ...

Are you talking about "Active track" or "follow me" ? Active track works well in my case, but follow me - does not.

Hi Eagle14.
I've been trying to get this to work since Christmas, not only can I not get it to work I have yet to see a video of anyone getting it to work. You would be amazed at the number of people who think  ActiveTrack: AT is the same as FollowMe: FM. I see that DJI-Ken didn't post you the compatible list. On that list is a Samsung S6 guess what It doesn't work. On my Thread, http://forum.dji.com/forum.php?m ... D368%26typeid%3D368 Follow Me mode? DJI-Paladin posted two screen shots, I suppose it was to demonstrate the FM on the P4. Do you think it's demonstrating a new Quantum field camera that can take photos of itself when it is 22 m up in the air?

Same problem with 2 androids devices : Sony Z3 and Sony Z5 compact.

Any error message, but the Phantom4 stay over without following me, in follow me mode.

Is this correct? To use Follow me you need to have a tablet with a GPS module.

So when DJI recommends as an example, an iPad mini 4 Wi-Fi + Cellular, you don't need nor actually use the Cellular account, just access to the GPS module in that model, VS the  iPad mini 4 Wi-Fi OR do you actually need a cellular account?

Yes, GPS enabled device is needed.
You do not need to have the data active.

Follow me follows the GPS in your phone/tablet.
So when you enter that flight mode, when you walk around the aircraft will follow the GPS connected to the RC.

I took my new Mavic out today and tried Active Track and Follow Me mode. Both times the Mavic tracked me on the camera but remained hovering in the one spot and would not follow me. Have a Samsung Galaxy S5 mobile attached to controller with GPS turned on. This was using DJI GO app. Will try DJI GO 4 app later to see if any better. Seems from reading this thread that this problem lays with DJI firmware and not with us fliers - of course I am happy to be proven wrong and shown what I am incorrectly doing.

I've tested out Active Track and Follow Me with IOS and both are working great.
I will try to get a Android device and test them out.

Did the GO 4 not work as well.
I'm sorry about that, I wish I had a Android device to test them out.
Have you tried in an open field?

Now working - only thing I can put it down to is that I had both GO and GO 4 loaded on my Samsung Galaxy s5 and maybe a conflict. Deleted both, factory reset my phone and just loaded GO and now all working

I have a question related to this. If I have the phantom 4 pro with the DJI screen on remote instead of using cell phone screen, does this mean I have to bring entire remote with me for follow me mode to work?

Yes, follow me follows the RC based on the GPS/GLONNASS information it gets from the Phone, tablet, or in your case the built in display.
