New DJI P4 RTK drone firmware arrives with updated map services
New firmware builds with updated map services have begun to roll out for some DJI products, beginning with the company’s most compact and accurate low-altitude mapping solution, the Phantom 4 RTK drone.
Last week, the tech giant issued an advisory to drone operators, urging them to update their flight apps and remote controllers for an imminent map services overhaul. And right on cue, the new firmware package for the P4 surveying drone has arrived with updated map services for the DJI GS RTK flight app.
In addition, DJI has added the “Smart Return to Home” option in Aircraft Battery settings in DJI GS RTK. When GNSS is available, Smart RTH can be initiated from the RTH button on the remote controller to get the drone to automatically return to the last recorded Home Point. As the aircraft returns, it will use the primary camera to identify obstacles as far as 300m in front, allowing it to plan a safe route home.
