    I'm thinking of getting a tablet so I don't have to use my cell phone for DJI Vision.

    I have a Samsung smartphone but I'd like to get a Samsung Galaxy tablet. So, I was thinking turn on the hotspot on my phone and use that to get the map for the Vision app on the tablet... Then connect the tablet to the Phantom.

    Anyone else try this? It should work, Right?

    It works... Use the hotspot to cache the map data... Turn off hotspot... Connect to phantom WiFi... Go nuts :ugeek:

    :D you could just put the app on your tablet then connect the phantom's wifi.
    I alternate between pad, iPhone, or android.
    Hope that helps.

    I have a Samsung tab 3. I have saved my maps to the locations I fly in prior. What is happening is that my tab works ok with fpv flying but when i try to map out a flight plan with my way points from the maps i privously saved they come up all blurry. So i to am scratching my head. Hot spot doesnt work for me. The DJI wifi comes in like I said for FPV flying just real blurry for auto fly. I was told I need a tab with real GPS built into it like the nexus 7 2nd gen. If anyone can help me out please do. TY. See my phone like most you can pull down your screen and hit GPS. Thats what you need on the tab. I THINK. :ugeek:

    Someone just said that the Samsung Tab 4 does not have a compass or magnetic sensor AFAIK and some features of DJI Vision will not function without it. But he didn't elaborate...

    Anyone know what features won't work without the compass of magnetic sensor?

    I don't think that is the same tablet. I'm getting the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4. Here are the specs:

    Nice tablet. I hope it works. The only thing I dont see is 2g 3g calling. It looks like you have a GPS chip wich is great. I think it will work. Or you can try the HOT SPOT method that DBS recomended. I was just looking for a tablet that works like my phone where I could go my location turn it on pull up a map set my points and fly. I have bad eyes. I will keep you posted. There has been a delay on my tab because I live in Buffalo.
