    I just purchased an Asus Nexus 7 tablet because it was recommended on the tablet list posted by drone forum for DJI. When I try to download DJI Go it says that the app is incompatible with this tablet. It does connect to Wi-Fi and it has a location setting so I assume it has GPS as well. This will be paired with a Phantom 4. What am I missing?

    I have one but have not tried to use it. Do you know if you have a gen 1 or gen 2 version? If gen 2 then try looking for the .apk file for the go app and side load it.

    It looks like it is a 2012 version. I don't know if it's Generation 1 or 2

    Try sideloading the DJI GO APK like this.

    Actually, it loaded and connected! Thanks! Now...the video feed is incredibly slow. Does that have anything to do with the fact that I'm inside testing it out? Or does this thing just not work well. My small phone works fine.

    I would guess your processor cannot handle the app if it is the older generation.

    That wouldn't matter. As WWK888 noted, it's a common issue with slower devices.

    I ended up returning it....minus a % restocking fee. That there is some bullsh*t. Beware of Deal Group USA - Amazon Marketplace.

    I believe only 2nd gen is satisfactory.

    Excellent. My 2nd gen has been flawless,used with my P2v+, and now my P4, and both Litchi,DJI vision, and DJI Go, all work.
