This is probably a stupid question, but I am a dji noob. When I select offline maps in the latest version of the app my location appears with a square around it. I assume the area inside the square is the area that will get downloaded. Online I have seen videos where people select their country and then choose state(s) to download. Is this something dji changed or am I missing something? What if I want to fly outside the square? Ohh yea, I'm using android. Thanks in advance for any information.

That's how it works in the current version of DJI GO.

That's how it works in older versions of DJI GO. For example:

You could setup a hotspot on a mobile phone (if you have cellular service) and connect your mobile device to it.
Thanks for that but I haven't connected my dedicated tablet to the web for a couple of years to avoid updates so the idea was to have maps without the web.
They're not really necessary so it was just a thought.
One thing though
Until recently my flight records have always shown where I've been flying but now they just say NO GPS although nothing has been changed and the bird is always in P mode with plenty of sats?
Any ideas on why the sudden change?
