    Searched the forum best I could and can't find the answer to my question. New to P3

    I was wondering, if I'm flying and I come to a specific location, is there anyway to get the GPS Coordinates for the location, Long and Lat etc?

    If you take a photo looking straight down at the point you are interested in, you can read the location from the Exif data included in each photo.

    You cannot get this data using DJI GO mid-flight. Some third party apps (like Litchi and Autopilot) can show it.

    You can also get the GPS data from the DJI GO flight log. You can upload the TXT flight log here to convert it to a KML file and view your entire flight in Google Earth.

    It's nice to know where you've been.
    My desktop is a Windoze7 PC.
    I right click on the image for properties, and all the exif data shows in there also.

    In the Android version, you can find the "Show GPS Coordinates" setting in the "General" section.

    It's not available in the iOS version. The features are still much more limited for some reason.
