    If I want to fly in a area where there's no cell phone reception or wi-fi, how do I make sure the map for MapView is loaded ahead of time? Thanks!

    if you don't have a satellite LTE service on your phone then that may be an issue.

    Open the DJI app, select camera, make map full screen, scroll to area you are going to fly. Zoom in and move around area. Close app. Open in area when ready to fly and the map should show. Works on my iPad w/o cell service. Make sure map caching is turned on in app.
