    Hi to all you guys like me who are eagerly awaiting there drone. :-(

    Does anyone know if the Mavic has a HDMI or equivalent output port, similar to the upgraded HDMI board available for the Phantom 3 Pro.

    For those not familiar with the Pro, a port where FPV goggles like the "Headplay" can be attached to view the flight.

    Regards

    No, there is no HDMI out.

    Thanks msinger for that, but do you know if there is any kind of external video out, or is it Just IOS and Andriod, is the display output similar to the Phantoms, ie LightBridge.

    The only currently supported video outside of a USB-tethered device running the Go app would be the DJI Goggles, which we know very little about.

    I wonder if anyone has tried to get video out of the lightning port with a lightning to hdmi adapter? I have one as I use it to watch movies on motel TV's. You could connect your phone via USB and the hdmi adapter via lightning. Be interesting to try.

    There is not as-is out of the box. I haven't heard anything about DJI releasing some type of adapter either. I think our best bet at this point is to wait for the Inspire 2 or Phantom 5 to be released. Both of those remote controllers will most likely use OcuSync -- and, I'm assuming they will come with an HDMI out or be compatible with some type of HDMI output module.

    Silly question, but what is the point of high definition video downlink, if there is no HDMI output? You are certainly not going to see the difference between 720 and 1080 on a phone.

    Doesn't work. The Lightning port on the Apple HDMI adapter is for charging only. Doesn't pass any data, so you can't connect the controller that way.

    Thanks, but I am aware of that as I use it all of the time. I was referring to the possibility of connecting the controller via USB to an Android phone, and the Apple adapter via the lightning connector for HDMI. Not at all sure if the controller will output data simultaneously to both ports as I don't have my Mavic yet, and from the looks of things the wait will be long.

    Nvidia Shield Tablet that has HDMI output is an option as well.

    what if you hook up the remote to a tablet that has an hdmi port on it (e.g. k1 shield) and connect your headplay to your tablet?

    You could do that with the Nvidia Shield K1. I believe that's the only compatible tablet that has an HDMI output. You're going to see the screen as-is on the tablet when using the googles. If that's not a deal breaker though, then it'll do the job.

    I still say this looks like a cool option:

    The new 300 model is supposed to run on Android, and there is talk of DJI Go compatibility.

    You can check out some video just posted that uses the NVidia Shiled's ability to provide HDMI output to goggles.

    Not sure about apple phones but most Android phones can do HDMI out of the USB. with an mhl adapter. My several year old sony z1 can do it and my new sony x performance can do it. It just mirrors the screen to any hdmi input.
