    Figured I would try the latest update as v2.84 brought video issues on my S2-T710 tablet and surely they would have fixed that in the latest update.

    Well the latest vr. Is even worse! Tablet rebooting by itself while the app tries to connect the live video. Video doesn't want to connect, and usually doesn't. Requires several USB reconnects before the video comes up or the tablet reboots.
    Back to v2.83!

    I'm getting tired of DJI shoving out these crap updates and telling everyone to go back to years old Android technology as they refuse to update their approved Android device list. Actually I'm tired of DJI period, and it's only been six months.

    LOL, I'm too old and stubborn to have DJI try and dictate how I do my business. That may work in a communist environment, but not for this old boy :)
    Besides I have an iPhone 6 and iPad :) Ones too small and the other too big. So the Samsung 8" T-710 with AMOLED screen is just right!

    Clear cache. Delete the app and reinstall.

    Sounds like you'll be in the market for an ipad Mini 4 really soon! ;-) ha!

    I use my Iphone 6+ and Ipad Air all the time to fly, never had any problems at all.

    Not an Apple fanboy by ANY means, but it's like the iPad Mini4 was made for this application.

    Any idea where I can find older app's and older firmware? Since the newest GO app, my app doesn't startup anymore.

    One of the members supplied a link to v2.83, which is the last vr. That I am able to run without issue.

    Thanks for the reminder tcope! Forgot to try that in my current state of mind :)
    Tried uniinstalling, clearing the cache and fresh install.
    Result, tablet has not rebooted yet. However the app still has difficulty connecting the camera. Back to v2.83 and no issues.

    no issues with APP and Nvidea K1
    or Moto X
    both at android 6.0.1 and 2.90

    almost all android issue posts include the word Samsung or S something!

    Keep in mind that you can only go back one version of firmware.

    K1 - works perfectly.. never an issue. Pretty much works the same as my iPad. Although, I think the compass is more reliable in the iPad Air 2

    Had the same issue - consequently lost my drone due to a flyaway. Of the opinion DJI should pull v2.9 and test it throughly; clearly certifying device / android combinations. Sorry lost confidence in DJI
