    I use My Kindle Fire for controlling the my PH4. It works great up to a point. It does not show any map display. I have downloaded Google Maps. If I use my phone there is not a problem except it is a lot smaller and I prefer the Kindle. Do I have to somehow link the DJI GO app with the Google Maps or is this just something inherent in using the Kindle?

    Not sure if this is the problem, but the Kindle Fire devices are some of the very few Android tablets that don't have GPS hardware so even if you get the maps installed you will not get full use of them when out of wifi range. Also you may need to install the Google Frame work services and Google Login services to get the maps working.

    Thanks for the info Mark. I'll see what I can do but it's not real important, I don't usually use the map option anyway. It's just a case if I could fix it without reinventing the wheel I'd give it a shot. If I use my phone I do have the map display so if I need it I do have access to it.
