I downloaded the firmware for the DJI goggles, messed around yesterday I even was able to view in the goggles what the camera was looking at. Now today I fired everything up and connected the goggles and nothing. I've been trying different things for an hour. I even changed USB cables. It wont connect. I can get my iPad connected fine, but not the goggles. Any ideas??

Hi,
Just received new white goggles yesterday. Internet has lots of
complaints about pairing Mavic Air to the goggles.
In short, here's what works.

(1) DJI Assistant (Mac or IBM-PC) downloaded and installed on computer.
(2) USB Cable from the bottom head band usb port on the goggles to computer.
(3) Launch DJI Assistant, turn on the goggles.
(4) Enter your DJI Account info, login password, etc, and let it write to the goggles
(5) It will tell you whether or not a firmware upgrade is needed, in my particular
case it was not.

Not doing the above, and screwing around with an iphone in the RC controller
is a waste of time, Put away the smart phone. Plug the large USB
connector into the bottom (large) USB port on the RC controller and proceed.

There are helpful youtube videos out there.

It appears that DJI never intended for the goggles to be used
with the Mavic Air, even though both can be bought as a bundle
deal., Keep the USB cable connected to the RC controller while flying.
Get a longer USB cable or extension if your spotter needs to walk
around while holding the RC controller.

Eyeglasses, I'll take my goggles to the drug store and try on various
$10 drug-store glasses.

A long-time Mavic Pro user told me to sit in a folding chair while
wearing the goggles, in order to prevent getting vertigo.

Hope the above is helpful and that I didnt leave out anything important.
