    Im using iPad Ground Station on my Flamewheel550.

    Where do the maps come from that are used in Ground Station app ?.

    You can zoom in to approx 1000ft agl, when I compare to google earth.

    Can anyone else zoom in closer than that ?

    Hi Browneee.

    I believe the maps used on the iPad app are old Bing images, if I look at my property on the app the image is about 12 years old where as on Google Earth ( and APM Mission Planner) it is only about three years old. I'm sure there is method buried somewhere in the madness that DJI employed when developing the GS App.

    Regards
