    That's in the "SDK Development" section of the features. If you're not familiar with SDK's, it means third party software developers can create new applications that perform functions like those -- for example. There are some third party applications being developed. This is the only one that is out right now:

    This is incorrect!
    I have UltimateFlight and Litchi.
    Neither support Follow, GS, POI.

    DJI has KILLED the SDK, with new firmware.
    Good luck getting any features, other than flight and video.

    Look up the app autopilot it says next update will have follow me mode for phantom 3 but the new firmware update probably killed that... that app is only for Apple products though

    Not entirely true, if you have 1.1.9 you can load the developer firmware and run these APPs. Litchi has Follow, GS, POI and works on P3P.

    Will the P3A ever be able to use SDK?

    Isn't the Pilot App going to be updated with waypoints soon. DJI advertised it for the I1 so I would assume it would be the same for the P3

    If you call DJI support, I am CERTAIN that you will receive an EXCELLENT answer.

    Sorry, but enough is enough.
    Wish that I would not have sold my Vision +

    Perhaps firmware prior to that as I have 1.1.9 and the dev firmware won't load.

    We have been assured from DJI employees that POI will be in the Pilot app... for whatever that is worth. DJI has also stated what you mention, that the SDK will support these functions. However, these things have been promised and in development for The least 6 months and we've seen nothing yet. I think it's a matter of time... but it's still a question of how much time.
