    It was probably intended to be Private, but the poster at DJI forgot to tick the checkbox.
    It's good to know we're closing in on actually (finally) having it.

    Hello All!
    I have downloaded the newest app where presumably you can set waypoints to your Phantom 2 Vision and I'm not quite sure how to get to the area on app that will allow me to set my waypoints. Could someone please educate me?

    DJI made advertising for Waypoint since January. It has been take 5 months so far but still customer get nothing.
    I have Phantom 2 vision. And I think I will never return to buy anything from DJI who has Chinese marketing style
    I think they wait to see other competitors as well. I found one who never promise to give like DJI but here you will got.

    Please see

    New version of the App. Looks like we are getting very close to the end of the test. Features added:

    1. Add ground station switch in the setting.default is close. Customer needs to open it and
    agree to DJI's disclaimer to use ground station.
    2. Add the satellite view in the gs page.
    3. Change the mission distance icon in the header bar.
    4. Share photos through Instagram in the ALBUM->share.

    Here is a shot of the hybrid view of my flying field.

    There's a whole lot of talk about this app. and I've seen a couple of tests from DJI. It looks good so far.

    In the first video they were talking about the Phantom. In the second Phantom 2 Vision + was mentioned. In both cases they were referring to iOS.

    That's all very well for iOS users but does anyone know - FOR SURE - if they will be releasing the same app for android usable with P2V?

    Someone please put me out of my misery.................. :?

    This is the next major version of the regular Vision App - so yes, both iOS and Android. Here's a post from Tahoe Ed in another forum, confirming that he's got beta versions for both iOS and Android:
