    I noticed on the corner of the DJI Go App there a small screen that uses google earth that shows the location of you and the drone. Does anyone know if it is possible for a way to view my own Google earth files (.KMZ or KML) to be viewed in this window?

    Or if their is another app or tool that allows me to view the locations of drone with Google Earth files?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

    Ultimate Flight will load kml files for waypoint missions. I haven't used that feature yet, as I have been focused on improving my videos and stills. I am a slow learner!

    Autoflight Logic's Autopilot will also allow you to import kmz/kml files to use as waypoint missions. Just got the app so I haven't had time to test it out yet, but AL said they added the capability to make the app to make it more usable for SAR groups. Autopilot is only for IOS right now, and it's a little more expensive compared to other apps, but you get a lot of functionality for what you pay.
