I wondered if there was anywhere that we can sign an email address up to get an alert when new firmware for the mavic comes out?

I don't fly everyday and would like the opportunity to upgrade the mavic, controller and all batteries before I rush out with it and then see there is an update on the app just before I fly.

Is there any where to get updates? Does anyone know if the App will alert you as soon as new software is released?

Thanks for any help,

Hello, please ensure your mobile device is connected with network. Then you will get the update prompt from DJI GO app if there's an update available.

Thanks Mindy, that's great, does it work when all updates are released? Or only when you are connected to the Mavic RC and Mavic Pro ready to fly?

I've never received an email alert or notification about a new firmware update. The app only alerts me when the aircraft is on and connected.

Just as Jason mentioned, please connect your mobile device to RC and connect RC to the aircraft.

I think what Mavi meant is it would be good to be notified without having to connect the aircraft.

It's annoying when you only have a short time to fly and discover you need to wait 30 mins for an update to go through

I believe you're talking about an app update. What I would like is a notification about new firmware updates, which don't necessarily coincide with app updates.

Jason is right, I'm talking about a firmware update, not an app update.

It's not a 'problem', more of a welcomed addition.

If I leave quickly to a place with bad phone reception, I may not be able to download the update, plus I loose a good amount of battery power while it updates loosing flying time as well as daylight time.

I was just wondering if there was someway to know without checking online or starting the mavic with my phone attached every day.

I might make a tool for this on DroneHome if there's enough demand for it. I have been considering it for a while.

Just use the DJI Assistant program before you head out the door.  It will tell you if there is new firmware.

That might be quite useful, if DJI doesn't implement it themselves.

I follow DJI support on FB and have noticed they post regularly about updates to the entire product line. The last update I leaned about from their FB post.

That's a fine idea for some, but normally I'm going out to fly and don't want to suddenly stop, unpack my Mavic, turn it all on to check, potentially wait another 30 minutes (and loose 10%+ use of that battery), then check my other batteries before I go out.

It's great if I know I'm going out in an few hours and I remember to take the time to check for updates, normally I have a break and look outside and if it looks good, head straight out to film.

Thats a good idea, hopefully it posts fairly soon on there and that would help my case. Thanks for that!

Usually the app will alert you. If I haven't used my Mavic for a while I usually plugin Mavic to DJI assistant before flying to check Mavic for software updates. Sometimes due to no cell coverage I might not get proper prompts or bandwidth to properly update the RC or drone.
