    Hi all. Recently Ive noticed when in flight I dont get the over head sat imagery on my flight map. However it has all necessary flight path and log data. When I connect to wifi at home and view the flight log the map data is there. Do i need to pre-cache the map data. The app is set to allow data over any network. Any ideas what may have changed?

    Hi,
    You need to pre-load before to use your drone :)

    You have to enable "cache map in the background" in the general settings of the GO app.
    Before you go out to fly, connect your device to Wi-Fi, open up the app and zoom in/out of the area do you plan to fly at.

    Hey guys thanks for your replies as well as the video. Very helpful! I tried pre-caching an area and that worked! I assume my cache got dumped and thats why even areas ive flown prior weren't mapped. Thanks again!
