    When using the iPad GS and Google Maps, I try to use the Search Function. Regardless of what I search for ( i.e. Address, street, lat long) I get no response other than the timed out message. What am I doing wrong?

    Is the iPad connected to the internet as well when you're using it with the groundstation?

    Yes. I can go to the regular Google Maps and do a successful search. But not in GS.

    I wonder if you put in lat and long coordinates if that would work in the search function? Has anyone tried?

    Same here. Good wifi connection and it keeps coming back with "Request Timeout".

    This is a bug they introduced when they released the flight restricted version of the Application back in April of last year.

    I'm still using the pre April 2014 release of the iPad Application and the search facility works remarkably well. I say remarkably as the map data is over ten years old and not the most recent Google Map data. When viewing my location the car in my driveway is one I sold nine years ago.

    Regards

    Quick edit. The data is at least twelve years old as the car in the driveway is my ex-wife's and we separated in 2003 :oops:

    It's now 2015 and this search function still does not work with my IPad GS & P2.This really irritates me.DJI does not care and will not address it
