New user here and am having some issues connecting my mavic pro. I know that I need a firmware update but until I can get to a wifi source I am using the drone with the existing version. I have to go through the start up sequence a few times (power RC, power drone battery, launch mavic Go 4) and the screen on my iPhone (X SE iOS 12.4.1) freezes. I usually power down a few times and then when I start up again I hear both the controller and drone do their connecting sounds and I can launch. I know there is likely something I AMA not doing correctly but can't figure out what. Anyone have ideas on corrective steps?

Put your phone in airplane mode, unplug the cable from the side of the RC, and use the RC center USB port to connect with a quality data cable.

Thanks Mossiback, I appreciate the response. I tried your suggestion and may have had a little success. The screen did not freeze but controller would not connect to drone until I turned off the battery again and turned it back and shut down the controller and restarted. I guess that's a little progress.
