Hi,

we, your customers, owning android-phones, waiting for the promised "coming soon" release of an Android-App for the Ground Station.

When we have to expect this ?

Finally the market-share for Android-phones is about 85 percent.  (Aug 2014)

Thanks for your concern.
DJI is just working on it, and still needs some time.
Please kindly keep an eye on DJI official website

Any news about the android app for the Ground Station?

There are many advantages in using an Amdroid device over an iOS device but there are no advantages of using an iOS device over an Android device. Here are what I personally think are the two major ones.

1. Cost. A suitable Android device can be bought for less than $100. I use a a generic no name tablet for my APM Mission Planner Ground Station. Also if I damage the Android tablet while out in the field it's not a great loss and chances are I could repair it with easily obtainable parts. Not the case with my $500 iPad Air.

2. Google Maps. The iOS version of the Groundstation uses Apple Maps. In this region the imagery is nearly fourteen years old and of such low resolution it's nigh on unusable. Where as on Android, and I'm referencing the APM Mission Planner again, the imagery is far more recent and of a higher resolution. This is why scientific and educational entities don't use Apple Maps.

What I would dearly love to see in any future release of the Groundstation App, whether it be on iOS, PC, or Android platform, is the implementation of no fly zones that are the same as thoughs that have been embedded into the Phantom V2 and Inspire where operation is limited in height dependant on the distance from the centre of the no fly zone and not, as in the case of the current Groundstation software, where operation is prevented within a five mile radius of the centre of the no fly zone.  This aspect is a personal one for me as I'm both disabled and live and fly legally from a CAA authorised model flying club airfield which is in one of these no fly zones, 4.8miles from the centre of the no fly zone.

Here's hoping for some good news after the start of the Chinese New Year.

Regards

Nidge

Any update on this? Only thing stopping me to buy the Ground Station is not supporting Android.

I don't think anyone can argue that  Google Maps are far superior than Apple Maps.. But unless you own a Premiun Android Tablet (GS desgined for tables not phones) You prolly wont have a compartible device to run something like GS that relies heavely on good GPS/LOCATION/TRUE GYROSCOPE/COMPASS ETC which many of the cheap android tablets don't offer... Its  just a fact.. way too many android devices with many of them NOT running similar or even compatible hardware.

Hi Ronny

It's very doubtful that a high end android device will be required.

All the devices you mentioned are on the craft and all the tablet is required to do is receive and display the telemetry.

As well as the DJI Datalink on my hex I also use the APM2.5 on my fixed wing craft. To link to the APM I use a very cheap, £50, Android Tablet. With this tablet I'm able to view the GPS location, ground speed, altitude, all plotted in realtime on Google Earth much like the DJI App on an iPad but with much higher resolution. I'm also able to monitor all aspects of the power system, battery voltage, instantaneous current draw, and total Current consumed. The waypoint feature is very similar to that of the DJI App but with greater dynamic flexibility and if I use my cheap GPS enabled Android phone the craft knows my current location and allows for "Follow Me Mode" and dynamic home point.

The PC version of Mission Planner has some additional nice features such as being able to overlay the transmitted video onto the HUD display, this is currently an experimental feature on the Android platform.

Regards

Nidge

My cheapo 7" Android tablet apparently isn't compatible.  I couldn't see the apps to download.

I am brand new to flying.  While assembling my Phantom 2 Vision "kit", I was thinking about what device to monitor the flight.  I have a large iPad 2, and an Android (4.3) smart phone with a 4" diagonal screen.  I wanted something in between these two extremes.  So I bought a cheapo tablet on clearance at the local discount store.

The iPad loads and runs the apps OK, the smart phone loads and runs the apps OK.  The cheapo RCA 7" Android Tablet doesn't show the Vision and Ground Station apps.  The cheapo tablet is an RCA dual core 8G Android running Kit Kat 4.4.2.

First flights were today, I found that setting the iPad on a table in front of me was more comfortable than trying to hold up that heavy thing on the controller.

BTW, we had a blast.  I love the Phantom 2 Vision.  I can't wait until I get good at flying this thing.

do a google search for the app, and you can download it from that search link. I just did that on a Nexus 7. I have dji app, and the dji ulitmate flight.

Do a search on Google for the app. Type in dji vison app or ultimate flight and it will come up under a google play link. Click on that to download to the tablet. I did that on a Nexus 7. Since it wasnt listed in the "play store" for the tablet.

WE want an Android app for the ground station!  C'mon DJI, take a break with designing new aircraft and support the old.  I have a Samsung Note 4 that can do everything the fruit's company can do and MORE.  So it's not a matter of hardware it's DJI's refusal to make an app probably because they have sold enough ground stations to make it profitable.  But I've heard or spoke to hundreds of folks who are like me that won't buy the hardware till you have an Android app.

I bought the latest model of Phantom (4 Pro +) and I feel hurt, I should have bought only the Pro (without the screen), so I could access the updates faster ... Now I have to wait a long time to launch the Version for Android and still torser to make the software available for the "4 pro +" version.
What's the use to pay more and buy the latest version and stay out or be the last to have the benefits :-(

It's something that's being worked on, however, we do not have an ETA as to when GS Pro will be made available for Android.

Welcome! Who knows the release date of the flight planning in the DJI Pilot? What's the point of buying a drone like this cost and not be able to work normally? Propose to require from DJI for a speedy solution to this problem.

Really DJI!
I would even be willing to buy one or more of your Crystalsky monitors (especially since they are supposed to work well in low temperatures, unlike ipads that are not made for winter).
Can you please start to offer complete pro solutions and pro support?
