It has no effect on most DJI gear as most use USA based GPS and Russian GLONAS.

Galileo is not actually operational ... it is STILL in test phase ... and what has happened now is one of the ground stations that corrects / monitors the timing has failed .....
24 sats are in position - but 3 are still test-mode with 21 working - but in error due to this ground station fault.

People may be surprised to know that there are another two systems as well ... Indian (in development / testing) and Chinese (operational) ... but these are also NOT used by DJI.

Thanks for the feedback. Happy landings!

Here’s a daft one. If the earth is round, how are all the satellites always there. The earth is spinning at 1000 miles per hour?
