    I know there's a ton of threads on the update, but it doesn't even show up on my new iPad mini.

    I just got an iPad mini as a gift, and the firmware update does not show up when I open up the Dji go app. It only shows up when I open the Dji go app on my Samsung s6. Why is that?

    Also, I cannot set the home point using the iPad until the p3s is up in the air. On the Samsung, I can set it all the time, and it works.

    I bought a tablet holder on Amazon, and it blows. It doesn't go high enough, and gets in the way of the antenna. I can't use a windsurfer.

    Can anyone recommend one?

    I have a P3S and use the inspire 1 mount...but you have to drill a hole. The also have some like it where you don't have to drill. Is the mini wifi or cellular? I believe you can set home point on galaxy cuz it has gps. Tons of stuff on here

    You can install the Inspire 1 tablet mount like this (the most stable option available). If you don't want to modify your remote controller, then check out the removable mounts here.

    Did you have the rc and ac on when you checked for firmware update on the mini?

    Did you try reinstalling DJI GO on your iPad?

    If you remove and reinstall the DJI GO app do you lose all of your information saved in your library or flight records?

    You should sync your flight logs before reinstalling DJI GO. Check out this post if you're not sure how to do that.

    Keep in mind the non-cellular version of the mini does not have GPS in it like the cellular version.

    Strangest thing happened. After 10 days of constantly using this thing, it all of a sudden decided to display the firmware update.

    It does have a place for a SIM card, plus has location services. I pretty much have to get a data plan for gps right?

    What I don't get is that I don't even use the gps on my Samsung because it's a battery killer, yet I'm able to set the home point easily, maps always load.

    No. It'll work without cell service.
