Orientation on the map will be correct if the compass calibration of the monitor as we’ll compass calibration of the drone are correct.
Thanks. I asked DJI and got a very long reply-seems like recalibrating everything, but also said to uninstall Go app and reinstall it. Sounds strange and dont know how to do that on Pro4+

You can take the RC of P4P+ to draw a figure like 8 in the air several times, then check whether the arrows matched or not.

This is the same procedure as you calibrate compass of your smart phones.

Braking now. Return sticks to midpoints, then continue flying.
This is warning on Phantom 4 Pro?
Can anyone give me idea?
Thank you

Usually compass calibers stays on until you pass through pulses of strong magnetic fields or high temperature zones. Not sure what’s the problem with your controller, may be it’s time to get a replacement.

Well - unit is only 1 month old. Maybe I should go to DJI, although I dont find them very knowledgeable. Thanks

also you can unlock the map by hitting the lock symbol in the corner , this lets the map move as you move then you can line yourself up with your Phantom , this helps with orientation of nose / tail too .
Thanks for this; I have a pretty new phantom 4 advanced with about 75 flights under my belt and I've been wondering about that lock on the map. Good info, and very much appreciated.

When the little lock is on the map it is in a north up configuration, when it’s off it’s in a course up configuration like many GPS units of today. Go4 starts in north up, wish it started course up every time myself.
