Is there a reason you would use an old DJI App with a new Drone?

Thanks!

I've seen reports of the new version having issues with specific phones.

I have a Galaxy S7 (non edge) and was worried that the app wouldn't work for me.  I was surprised when I didn't have any issues.  I haven't upgraded my firmware to the latest and might hold off doing it if we're forced to use the new app.

It seems more than ridiculous that a $1k Mavic can be rendered useless by a free app that's having tons of issues on various phones.

How could the app render the mavic useless? In the worst case you just unplug the usb cable and use the RC alone to bring back the drone.

I use the new app with my S7 edge and the only problem I have is that the POI mode doesn't seem to work. Multiple flight now without a single problem. With the old app I did like 3 flight and had 1 disconnect (drone still in LoS) so for me the new app works better.

If anyone feels the need to stay on Go 3.x, then simply downgrade your firmware. If you need the new firmware, then upgrade to Go 4. You can also use the new firmware with Litchi. Or, you could fly the drone sans-phone with the controller only.

So, I see FOUR options above, none of which render the Mavic "useless".

It's "almost" useless for the people that can't use the app, at all.  People are having more issues than the app crashing during flight.  Some people can't even get it to load, so you can't even make changes to default settings.

Luckily, I haven't had any issues, but that's also why I'm a little hesitant to upgrade.

So Litchi still works? I was wondering what would happen when DJI stops supporting the Mavic on the regular GO app if it would stop working on Litchi.

Just curious. I was wondering if that was supposed to be like that or if it were just happening to me?

Always something for folks to bitch about.  Just upgrade as required, there's no crying in droneworld.

Im using the old app as well, no issue at all. The reviews and the comments about dji go 4 are not good enough for me to use it.

I have both apps installed on Android and have updated to the latest firmware, they both work for me. I've been switching back and forth since I can still use the Art setting on the old GO app, was trying to see if any of the new video settings matched it but none do. I came close messing with other settings.

Its ridiculous that people complain about an app not working perfectly on UNSUPPORTED DEVICES ... why on earth would you expect anything different ?

I don't see anyone in this thread complaining about it not working on their outdated device. Only one person said the new version doesn't work on their phone and they weren't complaining about it. I'm not sure who you're referring to with that remark.

I have a new LG V20 phone and the go 4 app worked good on the first battery on my mavic but the second battery the app crashed. It quickly restarted and reconnected and i kept flying. I just updated the new firmware and will fly again tomorrow.

Hello, could you please describe the issue in detail? Since both of the DJI GO v3.1.1 and DJI GO 4 will work.

My new Mavic will not even start up the motors with the latest firmware. If I roll back it works but loses camera signal when higher than 3 foot off the ground. Ive sent all the details to DJI support on Wednesday and am still waiting for any progress.
Error messages are "Main controller data error" "Data recorder error" and "Data logger error" Ive updated and rolled back the firmware several times using DJI Assistant 2 and each time exactly the same. Ive asked for money back or immediate replacement. Waited 9 weeks for delivery and this is very disappointing.
