    Hello Everyone,

    I am looking to see if anyone knows how to change the background image that is used in the DJI Pilot app (iOS)? I would like to be able to able to replace the background with a regular grid to help me fly a regular pattern.

    I have looked around and just can't seem to find a solutions for this.

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,
    -GeoTech-

    That's not possible. You can use the sketch tool to draw lines on the map though. Perhaps you can plot out your course that way.

    Thank you for the response. Thought it maybe be possible through the software development kit?

    I think the Pix4D app does something similar.

    Perhaps. If so, that would require writing an entirely new app. You cannot just modify the DJI Pilot app via the SDK.

    There is a grid overlay in the DJI Pilot App. I've used it on the Nvidea Shield for following and keeping moving subjects centered in the screen.

    it's in settings or tools as I remember.

    It's in Camera --> Settings (for the camera) --> More -->Grid (just below Video Caption).
