OK I opened the GO Pro.... I see where it asks if I want to synch....I didn't know if I should so..I didn't.
I just synched all tonight.

Again, not to worry, your new P4 has a different flight controller serial number and will not be mixed up with the crashed P4.

OK..
I can clear the flight data on the GO app and start anew flying the new P4

Same for the GO4 app...clear the data and have just my Mavic Pro flights there..

I better go and read ALL of the user manuals P4 and Mavic from beginning to end....Time permitting...

That is correct, but when and if you sync, everything on the DJI server will download to whatever device you are using.

P4 is not supported on the new V4 interface?

As far as I'm aware it is, or at least it works well with my P4. The listing in Apple store appears to have been updated as well.

DJI Go 4 - For Phantom 4, Mavic and Inspire 2.

Good to hear, and yes great advice. Everyone needs to read the manual cover to cover and also understand all the features, functions, and limitations.
If you fully understand your aircraft and it's capabilities, you will love it.

Major problem Ken I have a 1no esc error and I have done everything to try to get it to work and it won't let me get my craft to work.... I knew something was to good to be true with the software and the latest firmware.

I am sorry about that, if you have an ESC error more than likely you would need to send the aircraft back.
You can try a factory reset or firmware refresh and see if it clears up but it may not work.

yes and I found the problem why I notice the arm that I complaint about telling you that the cable was a bit to long because it looks like with time all the bending it it could get damage even though physically it does not look damage, but its that when I turn on the craft the props of the other motor initiates but the one with that problem I took a photo and send to you well that one is not moving, the reason well opening and closing might of broken some of the filaments inside cable arms even though its not looking physically broken but I knew it would give me some problem and sure enough this has been the problem with all the glitches I am guessing. I need to send it back or have it replace because this came with a longer cable from factory..

no its not that its that stupid cable I mention to you from factory I took a photo of which is on the front arm that seems 2 to 3 mmm longer the other arm works fine but the right one is a tad longer that one I knew with time was going to give me a problem and now it does..

After everything is said and done the DJI Go 4 App is the better App for the Mavic Pro. The editing software is a very nice bonus, but I can see some people taking an offense to it because their phones are only 16 MB. I personally love the editing software. and would like to see more of it.

Perhaps DJI could split the App in two and make a separate App for those of us that like a fuller DJI editing software that is aimed directly at our DJI drone cameras. Then those that have smaller storage on their phones could also use it on their computers.

Why is the focus/exposure mode button (that used to be to the left of AE button) now gone? I used that button a lot to set exposure on a gray card, then locked that exposure .

DJI GO 4 still drains the crap out of my battery even when its not running in the background... i have to forece close it... I know it needs to run in the background in order to detect the drone but why don't you guys add somehtin like an Energy Saving Mode wich disables the auto detection?

I had an issue because of these confusing two apps. I installed both and ran go 4 first, but found that I couldn't link to the controller. I thought that the link between the controller and the aircraft was successful because the RC displayed the green light. Then the problem should be because of the connection between rc and the ac. I uninstalled both of go and go 4, but it didn't solve the problem. After a few hours of hard time I uninstalled all of them and deleted all the folders because I wanted to erase the cache. After that I installed go and after a couple of try I made the link between rc and go. There were no troubleshooting guides regarding it, though it could be expected.

I'd like to put in a request to return the MF/AF option. Once I'm in the air I don't need to refocus, and when it does it by itself it causes focus "breathing" which ruins the shot and is entirely unnecessary.
The Art colour was useful too for the look I use, and that's gone too. :-(

Yep, that comes in addition.
I can only have one DJI GO app installed. If I have both, neither is working.

You can install both but on Android, you can only run one at a time. This is stated elsewhere on this forum

So far I have only had a few minor glitches but after today the new GO App 4.01 update fixed the over exposure warning stripes.   I tested most everything else and it was working just fine.

I really hope this is only a temporary solution, but for me, owning both an OSMO and a Mavic it's ridiculous to have two different apps (2x 200MB) for the same purpose. I hope you are going to integrate all the products in one single app.

I have Mavic, Osmo Mobile, Phantom 3 Professional and Phantom 2 Vision +, according to DJI I shoould have THREE apps..  since P2V+ is only siupported by the earliest DJI Vision app....
Fortunately, DJI Go 3 does well with Mavic, Osmo and P3P, so I wander
Why should I step up to DJI GO 4? Do I really have a reason to?

The 4.0 does have some functions more if you use the Mavic (for example auto-focus)

The Go 4 app crashes for me every single time I open it with my phone in landscape orientation (which is all the time when it's in the controller). The app also frequently crashes for me while I'm flying, so I've been using the old DJI Go app for now because it seems to be more stable. I have the latest version of G0 4 (4.0.1), and I'm running Android 7.1.1 on my Nexus 6P.

Phantom 4 supports both DJI GO 4 and DJI GO APP.
If you have installed the DJI GO APP already in your device, just keep it and no need use another one.

I'll go ahead and use DJI GO for a while until people experience with DJI GO 4 a little bit more.

Phantom 4 supports both DJI GO APP and DJI GO 4. We'll help you evaluate it for any problems, if it's product faulty, and accord with after-sales policy, it will be covered by warranty.
If you use other third-party APPs while flying phantom 4, and damage is caused by that APP, it will not be covered by warranty.
If you have a P4P, you must use DJI GO 4.

my only question is, is it mandatory to download the Go4 app, i am currently a new purchaser of the Mavic Pro with it being my only DJI product and the go app i downloaded in December of 2016 which i am assuming is the Go3 is working fine enough for me.  it does not say Go4 at all. Without downloading the new 4 App will it affect my use of operating the Mavic using the current app now or in the future. in other words at some point will i have to add the Go4 app or will the Go3 app and firmware i currently have keep me happy and flying???

Both DJI GO APP and DJI GO 4 support Mavic, if DJI GO 3 is working perfectly with your Mavic, there is no need to install DJI GO 4 into your device.
DJI GO APP keeps upgrading, no worries, please enjoy your flight and feel free to contact us for any questions.

Is there anywhere I can find the list of enhancements or changes made in DJI GO 4 v DJI GO?  Since I have the option to use either I'd like to know what the differences are before I make any changes.

Seems to me DJI has a tendency to be lacking in the documentation department particularly when it comes to software, just an observation.

Thanks

Is there a list of supported tablets/phones for the DJI GO 4 App?

I purchased a new Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 (the 7" version with LTE) to be dedicated for use with the Mavic. Whenever using the DJI GO or the DJI GO 4 app I initially experience very long latency in the video stream as seen on the tablet, as much as 10 seconds delayed. If I exit the app and enter again the delay is less than 250ms. I don't know why it doesn't work and then it appears to work. I can reproduce this issue every time I use it.

Could you please add this tablet to the list of supported devices please? It really is a good size for the remote.

My brand new P4Pro+ GO4 app connects to the aircraft but the GO4 app crashes as soon as I hit "GO FLY". . . every time . . . I have done a factory reset, deleted or cleared settings and reinstalled multiple times. Aircraft firmware is v.0203 controller 1.1.1.1 and GO4 v 4.0.0(12)   Is there any way to fix this or is it perhaps a hardware fault in the controller?

We're aware of the crash issue for DJI GO 4 and will get it fixed with next version.
For the original DJI GO, would you please describe the issue in detail, we'd like to help you solve it.
