Hello everyone I came here to learn about my phantom 4 pro.

Right now I’m curious as to what maps and mapping are for and how to do this with the DJI go 4 app.

Thanks in advance.

google drone deploy. they offer a free service. pro tip- for your first couple flights, maybe manually launch your drone up to elevation then start your drone deploy mission. have fun! its a cool feature of these drones

Welcome to the forum! :)

I cannot assist with figuring out why you'd personally want to use mapping features, but you'll need some kind of 3rd party app to do that work. You can find a list of commonly used mapping apps here.

LITCHI IS A DREAM !! It makes laying out flight maps - free flights or just about anything. To me it works a lot better than the DJI software - Completely solid with no errors that I have seen

I crashed my p4p using the litchi app. I don’t know if I had to enable obstacle avoidance on the dji go 4 app first.

I’m kinda gun shy about using litchi now.

Welcome to Phantom Pilots from Dayton Ohio USA. I use Drone Deploy to do my capturing and then process it in Agisoft Photoscan Pro. For small easy jobs I process with Maps Made Easy as smaller areas usually under about 100 photos they will process free. Fly safe and have fun!
