Hi,

regarding to the many app-crash feedback on different boards all over the internet, I just want to ask you whether the latest DJI Go App (4.0.6 - Android) is running smooth on your device or if you have some trouble. It would be great if you post your device, your android version and what you have voted above. So maybe we get an overview if the latest update is really that bad.

Since I have upgraded to DJI Go 4.0.6 on my XIAOMI Redmi Note 2 (running Android 5 "Lollipop") my drone has become unusable for me. I have decided to go back to DJI Go 4.0.5 and now everything is fine again. Don't know if it's only me, but lets find out with this poll.

Regards,
patman89

I have an Galaxy S5 and it works perfectly. Haven't any trouble with crashes. My only problem was that I had to rip off the water resistance cover for the charging port. Not that I ever used it lol.

I'm still trying to figure out what went wrong with my upgrade.

Initially I tried to make the update over the DJI Go App v4.0.5 - which seemed to work. But after upgrading the App to v4.0.6 it asked me to upgrade to the latest Firmware (01.03.0600) again. I tried to do this, but it failed, so I reverted the mavic to FW .0550 via DJI Assistant 2. Then I had permanet app-crashes, could not get a stable video link (every few seconds I got a freeze frame or a black screen) and in the end it forced my smartphone to reboot twice.

A very weired behavior which I hadn't on FW .0550 and DJI Go 4.0.5. After downgrading everything, my drone and thesSmartphone working fine again - so I think I wait for FW .0650 :-)

My app crashed every time I hooked it up.  I'm running it on a Galaxy S7 Edge.  I'm curious if the app caused my troubles, needing to ship it back on the first flight.

Google Pixel XL Android 7.1.2: App crashes not very often, but when it does, it freezes phone to the point I have to reboot it holding power button.
Google Nexus 6 android 7.1.1: App crashes often, but it can be quickly restarted with one tap.

That's why I'm flying with Nexus 6. Beigger screen is a bonus too.

I have tried it with my XIAOMI Redmi Note 2. Just tried to use DJI Go 4.0.6 with RC and AC at FW .0550 but the app keeps crashing all the time.

And I have tried to upgrade my Mavic via PC and DJI Assistant 2 (different versions - no success). The RC has no problems with this update. But this is a different topic not to discuss here :-)

I just updated DJI GO 4 to 4.0.6 today and as soon as I lifted off and hit video record, the app crashed. Launched the app again, hit record, crashed again. So I rebooted everything - the phone, mavic and controller. Again, the launch was fine, was able to control the mavic like normal, but as soon as I hit video record the app shut down. I'm using Android 4.4.4 loaded onto an Amazon Fire phone. Never ever had a problem with DJI GO 4.0.5.

Galaxy S7 (Verizon), recently upgraded to Android 7.0 Nougat (stock/no root).  .600 firmware and the latest NFZ info...  basically I have the latest everything.  I flew through 6 batteries worth of flights in the last 2 days and the app crashed once on me.  This was only my second app crash so it took me a second to figure out what was going on.  After restarting, it only took around 5 seconds for me to be back in the app.  It took another while...5 or 6 seconds more, for my maps to reload.  All the while my Mavic just hovered in place, so it was rather uneventful.

Galaxy S7 on Nougat. The only issues I have had were with the cable and connection, and only when the connection got messed I had one crash. It turns out that my usb port was dirty (pun intended) and after cleaning it everything runs smoothly. I also had to replace the side cable, as it stopped working. I guess it got damaged by the remote folding. I think the side cable is really bad designed...

I used my Mavic for a couple of months with no problems, no crashes.  As soon as I upgraded to DJI GO 4 all hell broke lose.  I lost connection with the drone and crashed.  $300 (and two months of waiting) later, I was back in the air.  With the latest firmware, the app still kept crashing, sometimes as soon as 10 seconds into the flight.  Needless to say I kept the drone in plain site and away from trees, as a RTH could cause another disaster.  I followed another forum's advice and shut all apps, put in airplane mode and re-booted with portrait orientation locked.  That seemed to fix all problems.  I have not had any stability issues since then.  I was able to rescue the last two days of an 8 night trip whose main purpose had been to film in the North Georgia Mountains.  You would think spending $1,000 on a drone would get you a stable app.  Using a Pixel XL on Verizon, by the way.

I have the s7 edge and today when the battery went low on my mavic, it automatically attempted to RTH. The video signal jumped a few times and I could nt cance the RTH. I was in a woods and needed to cancel! I had to keep the left control pulled down constantly and eventually after at least 3 minutes of doign that.. it decided to land. After I powered don, then it said "Do you want to cancel RTH".Any advice? I was freaked out as to why I seemed to have no control and everythign taking 10 times longer to respond..

Droid Turbo running marshmallow and never had a problem since I got the Mavic in January. I thought I did once after the .550 update when video froze and app restarted but I forgot to put the phone into airplane mode which I have always done .  Updated the Go app and Mavic FW Friday morning and flew this weekend with no issues .

Anyone knows if the app crashes may disappear if you use the latest drone and RC firmware? Maybe I need to try to upgrade, but at the moment it doesn't work :-/

And does anyone know when the next update will be pushed out?

Galaxy S6 on android 7. Latest firmware. DJI go 4.0.6 - Crashes 1-2 times in a flight. After that I have to start the app again and fly as usually. 4.05 also had the same issue. I think the problem started when android  updated from ver 6 to 7. But reinstalling DJI Go 4.05 app helped to solve the problem. Now reinstalling does not help.

The DJI GO app was updated overnight.
Then on a lovely sunny day before taking it on a flight i thought i want that .600 update.
Installed it and wanted to go flying.
***NFZ error***, so downgraded the craft and controller and took it into the air.
****NOT**** cause the app kept crashing, did everything, restarting reinstalling all the hocus pocus nothing worked.
Went home and checked it again and strangely at home it worked well and seemed stable?

But the fact that the problem cannot be pinpointed to a single thing for everybody is the most scary bit of the app.
Anyone can loose his drone with this update and that should be a BIG concern for DJI, which they should address

Actually!! I've been testing it out everything since I've updated. And nothing is working. That's why I asked if anything had the old APK of an older version of the app. But they haven't said a word which is super scary. Because a user could easily lost his drone because of an app crash or delay in the screen.  There has to be a place where we can save old version of the app.

Because this isn't fair. I don't want to crash my second drone while I still wait for the first one.

I have a Nexus 6P and it's common to have one or two issues during a flight with the app.  When I change batteries, I have to exit the app completely and disconnect it from the controller or else the entire phone will freeze and I am forced to restart the phone.

I have used every version up to 4.0.5 without any problems on my Xiaomi Redmi 4 Pro running LineageOS 13.1 (6.01). After the upgrade to 4.0.6 (and 4.0.7 for that matter) , it keeps crashing right after I close the aircraft status window when the Mavic is connected. From then on it keeps crashing and restarting continuously. I realize neither the Redmi 4 nor Lineage are formally supported, but I never had any crashes on earlier versions. And when I restored 4.0.5 from Titanium Backup everything was back to normal again, no issues.

The strange thing is that I also have a nexus 7 2013 and a Xiaomi Mi Max, both running LineageOS 14 (Android 7.1.1) and GO 4.0.6 runs fine on those devices as well.
[Update] Not sure what happened, but it somehow seems to be solved now (on 4.0.7). Not sure if it's related, but I app notified that the video cache was full. The settings were back to default (after a reinstall), with the cache set to 2GB and not set to auto-clean. I set it back to 6GB with auto-cleaning enabled and also disbled audio recording.

I just tried 4.0.7 and it is a littlebit better, but it crashes after a few minutes and then it doesn't stop doing this anymore until I reboot my device. Went back to 4.0.5 - maybe this is because I'm still on FW .0550 - guess some incompatibility? Or DJI has triggered the switch to make my phone incompatible to their new app.

Onplus 3, android 7.1.1,   4.0.6 crashes just as often as before, strangely though now instead of simply crashing, it crashes and turns the power of on the phone (like hitting the power button), then have to turn the phone back on and start the app back up.

PAIN IN THE ASS.  can't believe we're still having to put up with this rubbish.

I'm running Android 5 Lollypop and have the same issues. Thought about upgrading to an inoffical nougat rom, hence my phone doesn't receive any further updates :-( But if you say Android 7 has the same issues I won't upgrade.
