    Went out for a flight this afternoon, and was curious when I launched the DJI app as to why I was only contacting 3 satellites. Couldn't figure it out. I didn't realize it, but the app had been running in the background from a previous flight. I closed the app manually, and then restarted, and all of a sudden, had 19 satellites. I was a little surprised that it took manually closing the app, and restarting, but either way, thought I'd post on here for other newbies like myself :)

    I don't believe the app is the item that talks to the gps satellites, it would be the quad. It could have been that the app didn't reconnect properly to the quad so stopping and restarting it "refreshed" the connection.

    I've found occasionally app doesn't reconnect after powering phantom off/on. I unplug and replug lightning connector on ipad and it pops straight back up.
