What does this message mean? "Point GPS module's arrow to front of aircraft" (see image below).

I ended up just rebooting my P4 and recalibrating the compass. The message then never reappeared. By the way, I did update the firmware the night before this flight.

This is with an iPad Air 2 (128 GB), Phantom 4 f/w version 01.02.0602, RC f/w version 1.8.0, and DJI Go version 3.1.0

Seems like a software artifact from other DJI flight controllers (Wookong, etc.) which include(d) a GPS/Compass ‘puck’ on a stalk.

Since the compass must be properly aligned to the aircraft axes the puck had an arrow to indicate forward.
It actually has nothing to do with GPS per se.
