There seems to be quite a bit of diffence between the iOS and Android Go 4 apps...... at least as far a features or extended features of features. For instance I tried Waypoints yesterday and I do not have the features for camera orientation and such. And active track I have neot seen the options of spotlight and others. Why is the Android version so far behind? I am not a bid apple fan and do not want to buy an appl product.

I believe it is because if you look at iOS products you only need to worry about the iPad and the iPhone, and for Android you have so many different MFRs with different components and running different software.

You may not be a fan of Apple products, but if you want best performance with your Mavic I'd recommend to buy an iPad mini 2-4 that you can dedicate to your Mavic.

You always can find an iPhone 6 plus decent sized screen and works great! I have one for sale if your looking.

The iPad Mini fits in the front pouch of the DJI Mavic bag.
And there are some features on IOS that are not on Android and the reverse is true true. Also, on Android the features may be in a different location. For instance when in Waypoint mode on Android if you tap the gear icon it will take you to the camera orientation.

As FrequentFlyer mentioned there are not multiple versions of iOS just one unlike Android. And it saddenes me to know they mwy not release GS pro for Android.

I was just looking for Spotlight mode - I ended up finding it in a submenu of Active Track (bottom right box in android) after you start it. It's really an odd design. I wish the Android developers would make it a first class feature.
