    Can someone tell me if you still get positional telemetry data without GPS lock. On the app it just says NA. Since I cannot get GPS I think I have a bad GPS. Just want to get a better idea if the problem is primarily GPS and not something else.

    Thanks!

    just realized that battery level, gps status and gimbal control not working either. So basically all I have on the app is ability to take pictures...I have sd card status...remaining shots but that's it...so apparently my issues are more than GPS? looks like I am going to have to take this thing in for service....:(

    Is the cable all the way in on the camera?

    It could be giving power but not data from the phantom

    It was a bad central board. The GPS was a different issue. I took it in to EZDRONE.COM and they did a hard reset on the GPS and reinstalled the firmware. Apparently it now gets GPS lock. Once I replace the central board it should be back in business.
