iPhone 6 is compatible - the compass is in the drone. Have you tried calibrating the compass outside in an area free of electromagnetic interference?

It is the compass in the bottom left corner of the phone,running DJI 4 Go it just spinns around ,I did an update (4.2.22) a few days ago thinking that it would fix it , but no luck. The audio low battery warnig before the update was not working and still is no good. The compass in my iPhone by it self spinns around ,I can't get  it fixed , I just like to know if other pilots have the same problem ,cheers

Hi there, sorry to hear that. What is the IOS version of your iPhone 6?  Can you please provide a video on the APP wherein you can see the compass in the bottom left corner spinning?  You can use google drive or drop-box for you to upload it. Sometimes, wearing accessories like a watch or anything that has metals or magnets on it can cause issues on your compass.

I have brought up the issue with no Low Battery audio alert numerous times...the 6S had the audio alert at one time and then with new DJI Go 4 updates it was lost.  I don't have any compass issues.

If your iPhone's compass is itself broken so it spins, the app will then show a spinning drone icon in the lower left corner.  The app relates the drones direction to the direction you are facing using the drone's compass and,...your phone's compass.

I use a iPhone6.  No issues but I monitor my battery level myself.  I think I have heard the low battery warning but can't be sure.  Not sure because I am already flying it back to my hand by the time the app starts alerting about the battery low level.  I remember a low battery voice as the alert but not sure when it was.

I also use batteries that haven't been used in awhile so they are often in storage mode with only 60% battery when I take off.  So they are pretty low to begin with.

That's the answer I was looking for ,I allways suspected that is was the i phone's compass. Well I have to get a new one ,cheers

Critical battery warning comes in at 10%  ?
I think that is already to late , a beginner could start to panic , not much time left ,  cheers

Are you gonna buy the same IPhone 6 like you had just for the Compass in the DJI Go 4 App ?

Why don't you try to fix the IPhone that you already have, maybe a Degaussing and Re-Calibration is all that is needed ? Talk to an IPhone Repair Centre and get some Quotes from Pro Techinicans if I were you first. Maybe they can replace the Module for you and you will save a lot of money.

I you have no alternative in Fixing the Phone's Compass, then you have no other option but to buy a New Phone, if you want the Compass in the DJI Go 4 App to work as intended.

Hi, sorry about that, if you do have spare of a phone that is compatible with our aircraft, you can try to use that to check if you'll be getting the same result when in terms of a compass, please recalibrate the IMU and compass. Thank you.
