When fly in my backyard I'm using the house wifi to access the internet instead of the device due to not using a cellular tablet. In the app's Google map display....does the DJI Pilot App recognize the House Wifi/Router, the TX Controller, or the WiFi Tablet I use as being the Pilot?

From what I understand DJI Pilot will use your wifi to download data for your map. It does use the wifi to update your location but will use your tablet to update your current location. The location of the aircraft will come via its GPS chip. The P3 controller AFAIK does not have any GPS

The Tx and the app itself won't connect to your wifi but the tablet does.
However it is not necessary to have wifi connection while flying.
You are able to cache maps at home on the app and travel to anywhere you want and fly with map coverage.
