    I have seen a few posts here that within the context of the post mention "I had X GPS satellites when I was _____" Where X is a specific number.

    Is there someplace where an operator can actually see how many GPS satellites the phantom has acquired at any given time?

    Tnx

    It is displayed in the upper right corner of the Phantom APP running on your iPhone/iPad/Android device

    But they don't tell how many satellites Phantom actually "sees". Vision app knows.

    Thanks for the replies. and yes AnselA, I agree. They don't show what the Phantom actually sees. Still good info to have. Thanks.
