I downloaded the update automatically today. I don't understand number 4 though: "upgrade range extender". Unfortunately the manual download feature doesn't download a version of the manual that explains how it uses the mobile data network.

I downloaded the latest version, and now after I link up the phantom and click on 'camera', the whole app crashes! (forced close). Bug?

Someone at the RC shop tried his phone with the latest app and it crashes also. Is there a hot fix for this?

on a side note:
I have 'upgraded' my extender to accept mobile data, so now when I link up my drone with controller, I do not see the 'wifi' icon on my iPhone but the 3G/4G.

Nevertheless, couldn't test this out because every time i go camera, the app crashes. Help!

Yes works for me too on my iPhone 6 Plus. I think.

Updated the range extender and now it does not show the wifi on the phone just the 4G indicator.

I have not seen how the ready to fly or light replicator works.

I just get a bar at the top of the screen that says NA.?

I have been trying indoors and don't have 6 sats yet. But I would have expected that the light replicator would have still worked.

When the rain stops outside I will try to get a sat fix and see what happens.

I too am having the camera issue. My DJI App and iPhone 6 are totally upgrades with all new updates. However, the DJI App crashes when I toggle the Drone Camera up or down through my camera/app.

What is this new firmware and where can I download?

I'm not 100% sure but it looks to me that there is additional drain on the WiFi Extender after the extender update. My battery levels appear to go down faster. But maybe i'm just imagining things.

Can some one else check and report?

There never has been an iPad app. You download the iPhone app to the iPad and use it that way. Video resolution suffers a bit, but the larger image probably makes up for it. YMMV

Seriously? This update fails when you try anything associated with the camera.  I tried uninstalling it from the iPhone and reinstalling and it didn't work even then. I'd suspect that people reporting it as OK are Android users. It did allow the range booster update (or so it said). I would recommend that anyone who hasn't done the upgrade wait. You can fly manually of course, but no FPV or camera until this gets sorted by DJI.

Hi,
You can better reinstall the old version of the app. I used the new app yesterday, flying my phantom 2 vision in the snow and the app crashed the whole time. Today with the old version, no problems.

Dropping back to a previous version isn't an option with the Apple closed infrastructure. The only thing offered for installation is the newest (broken) version.

Thanks for your support!

Well, nothing new as I can see as I did the iOS u.g before the P2V+ camera update and now both are done.
The ap did crash one or two times indoors after the camera update and no feedback on their both working harmoniously in flight or not...maybe a chance to test later when it is a bit clearer outside.
I hope it works!

Hi, The bar with the NA on it if you tap it a drop box comes down, I presume that is where it is supposed to show you which way the machine is facing, but at the moment i havent updated my camera and I was just wondering if the update is done whether that changes at all? cheers Jeff

FINALLY SOLVED !!

As if I needed an excuse to waste a Sunday.

The entire crux of the problem in getting the new app to work is the camera itself. I was complaining to a fellow DJI owner here and he told me he had the same problem.

Working by the process of elimination, we first looked at the software on everything (drone, transmitter and camera) and the only item not up to snuff was the camera. YOU HAVE TO HAVE THE NEW CAMERA FIRMWARE RELEASED JANUARY 15th.

Search YouTube for the video released by DJI on how to update camera software. It works on V2+.  We downloaded the camera firmware to our memory cards like the video said and started the aircraft up with the update on the card.

The update auto installs itself. W A R N I N G   It takes a long time. BE PATIENT. If you stop or otherwise interrupt the process, you'll brick your camera. Once we got the install completed, no more crashes of the iPhone App. I can confirm that this procedure works on v2+ we both have v2+ so I can't positively say if it's OK on any other version.

Here's the link to download it. It's almost to the bottom of the Windows software.  

http://www.dji.com/product/phantom-2-vision-plus/download.

We flight tested yesterday afternoon and went through two fully charged batteries with no app crashes.

Anyone...Just how long does the camera update take?  I'm well past 45 minutes, with blinking yellow LED's...
Edit:
Never mind.  So, I had turned on only the copter, as I thought that was the direction.  After way too long, I turned on the WiFi and app.  Live video coming through.  Took a photo, which showed a black screen with a box and text asking if I wanted to upgrade firmware. About screen still showed old version.  Finally took a chance at bricking it and shut down.  Formatted the card on the computer and reloaded the .bin but only named it "firmware.bin".  This time, I did the normal start up routine (controller, WiFi, then copter power).  Powered up app.  Appeared to be a normal start up, with the GPS lock fast green flashes and all.  I figured it didn't do the upgrade, maybe because the file name was wrong.  Checked the About screen and...new version.  Took no more time than a regular start up.  I think that, if it finds a .bin file in the card, it looks for it to be an upgrade.  Anyway, all is well.

Took about a minute for the actual update once card was inserted..Make sure Phantom is powered down when you put the card in, reboot the Phantom and you should be good to go after a minute.
There is a YouTube video on the procedure..
As a few noted you also need to change the name of the file...You need to remove "_v1.3.0g" from the file name...

My belief, because the file name is "firmware_plus_v1.3.0g.bin" is that it's only for the Plus.
