    Does anyone know why the distance from me on my iPad would be giving me a huge reading and when I expand Google it shows me in the Atlantic Ocean south of Nigeria? Im not south of Nigeria I am actually in Dubai...... It places the Phantom correctly but not me????

    I take it this is when you are using the simulator mode while indoors?

    You will not see your true position until your craft has logged its home location with a GPS fix.

    I have a similar problem. Very concerning.

    It shows me as 220,000 feet away from home on the distance from phantom to me.

    Otherwise everything works fine, and i'm displayed on the map properly

    You need to restart the app with the Phantom still active when the "GS" restarts the distance will be correct...
