    Hello I'm a noob with a P3S. I have a android tablet without mobile network, WiFi only. Is there any way I can preload maps to my rc or drone to have a map when I'm flying

    Use a hotspot (phone), or cache maps ahead of time while connected to wifi.

    Thanks, but not to sure about how to cache maps. I'm not too familiar with all that. Lol, but I don't mind researching

    Connect to a WiFi hotspot and go open up your dji go app and bring up the map, that's how I do mine I got the same deal

    Make sure your on home wifi not connected to the rc or bird...In the settings in GO make sure you enable cache map....then go to your map on the bottom of the screen while in camera view...zoom in to how you want to view it..hit satellite or hybrid, whatever you want...then scroll around the area to where you want to fly...done...turn it off...drive to your spot open it all up and your good to go
