    I live in Northern Virginia near Washington DC. Literally three blocks outside of 12 mile NFZ.
    With my Phantom 4, I can fly from my backyard and fly to the opposite direction just fine.
    Just got my Mavic Pro last week, she comes up not able to fly because it says that it's in restricted area.

    * I use the same iPhone with the same DJI Go app to fly.
    * I tried two drones back to back with the same iPhone: P4=no problem, MP=NFZ
    * the GeoFencing is set to be "off" in both sessions in DJI Go app
    * in DJI Go app, the map shows that I'm outside the red NFZ zone (in both cases) and good to go.
    * B4UFLY app shows that I'm good to go from my location.


    two drones from same DJI... other than the drones/remote, it's literally the same condition... Not sure why Mavic thinks I'm in restricted area when Phantom 4 thinks we are good to go.

    the fact is that I am truly at a location where it's allowed to fly.

    I've tried to uninstall and reinstall the Go app. no joy on NFZ error.
    running out of ideas to try.

    Anyone have any ideas to try? Help~~~~

    This is the screen capture...
    notice in the map, I'm clearly not in the restricted area... yet not allowed to fly...

    On the Airmap site, it actually looks like that location is within the restricted area.

    How does that explain that I am able to fly my current Phantom 4 as well as my old Phantoms?

    And the weirdest thing is that both my Phantom 4 and Mavic pro are from same company. And I'm using the same control devices (iPhone + same DJI Go app)

    And my location is so on the fringe of that restriction, depending on which database you look up, it'll show as red zone as well as cleared zone.
    But that's not the point, right?
    If it is indeed in the NFZ, then how come DJI's own Phantom able to clear?
