    The ground station App is only for the P2... The P2 Vision has its own waypoint system withing the DJI vsion app...

    I'm confused. I just purchased the Phantom 2 Vision. Not the +. Do I need the Ground Station? If not what do I need for my PC? I'm using a 64 bit Windows 7 system.

    For the Phantom Vision you do not need anything but the Vision App on an Android or an iPhone/iPad. You have to enable waypoints in the Vision App and then you will have access to the screen used to set and execute waypoint missons. You cannot use a PC to fly waypoints on any of the Phantom models. Does the Ground Station software you are referring to run on a PC? If so that is actually for flying DJI controlled multi-rotors using the A2 or Naza flight controllers.

    With the Litchi app for Android, you can use a PC to create and save waypoint routes. That is what I do. Go to http://www.flylitchi.com/gs. This only works with their app.

    Otherwise, the other posters are correct. The DJI Vision app (at least for Android) has a groundstation mode. It can be enabled in the setting.

    I downloaded the Litchi app to my Samsung Galaxy. Not on my PC. I can use the PC and Ground station to lay out way points but what use is the Litchi app? Do they work in tandem?
