    No release date but beta testers are hopeful for a release anytime now.

    other threads on this site are talking about ground stations like it's already been released and is being used.

    There are a few beta testers (DJI support people) who are using it and feeding us information. It should be out soon.

    ORdered a PV2+ and ordered the ground station. The later is here, I suspect I can connect to bluetooth signal, but so far haven't been able to.

    I power up the ground station (ground end) and try to connect to ipad3 and they don't seem to find each other.

    No instructions came with it what so ever. = (

    connections were very logical and simple... but how to connect. Also the ground unit has a small power connector that you can connect to a battery source. I found online this can be 2S or 3S (whats that mean?) also it says 9.9v to 24v which seems like a hell of a range - what is best? Can it go to a cigarette lighter port in a car?

    appears to be DJI site shows the iPad ground station. So I ordered the ground station. Which is here before the PV2+
    I have 2.4 data link LK24-BT
    i thought even with our the air end setup (PV2+ not here yet) that I'd at least get a bluetooth link.

    DJI never said it was due this week. Some of the testers were hopeful it would be but I don't recall anything official about a release date besides "when its ready".

    If I am not mistaken, the iPad/Groundstation/Lightbridge package is for another model of Phantom.

    P2V+ already has a way to communicate so it does not need the Lightbridge.

    As far as I can tell, the new "DJI Vision" app that included the WayPoint flying is in beta testing. And all that you'll need for waypoint flying is:

    P2V+
    DJI Vision app

    Here's a video from beta tester on Waypoint flying with P2V+
    That's it.

    On December 4th, 2013 DJI said "officially" and documented "The update will be released around the end of December or early January."

    Exactly. At the moment there's six months to the next December...
