With the DJI Fly App Update 1.9.0 DJI delivers two interesting features and also brings support for the current DJI Mini 3 (not Pro). What is in detail everything in the update, we tell you in this message.
The DJI Fly App 1.9.0 was rolled out simultaneously with the release of the DJI Mini 3 (not Pro) for Android and iOS. It not only includes the obligatory support for the acute drone, but also delivers new features for a long time.
Owners of a Mavic 3 can now finally use the Waypoint function. As a drone pilot, you can plan routes in advance and have them flown automatically. A long desired feature and one of the reasons why alternative apps for controlling DJI drones, such as Litchi, are so popular. To use the feature, the Mavic 3 fimrmware must be updated to v01.00.1000.
The second function provides support for offline maps. This way, pre-downloaded map sections can be used on the go even without mobile data.
Patchnotes DJI Fly App Update 1.9.0
- Adds support for DJI Mini 3
(compatible with DJI RC-N1 remote controller and DJI RC).
- Adds Waypoint Flight. Using waypoints, aircraft can automatically fly the exact preset route. This feature is currently only available on DJI Mavic 3 series aircraft.
(Update aircraft firmware to latest version to use above features.)
- Adds offline maps. Go to Profile->Offline Maps to download maps of your planned flight destinations and have the maps displayed even when there is no network connection.
Download DJI Fly App 1.9.0
All details as well as the link to download the DJI Fly app can be found in the linked article.
Android has its own in-app update mechanism since version 1.2.4. After launching, the app will automatically inform you about a new version and can download and install it. Alternatively, you can manually trigger the search for a new version in the DJI Fly app via Profile -> Settings -> Info -> Check for updates.
The DJI Fly app is no longer listed in the Google Play Store since version 1.2.4. Owners of a version older than 1.2.4 must therefore download a current version from DJI’s website*. Only then can the Fly app perform updates on its own.
