    Hi,

    Just got my mavic and love it.

    However, cant figure out how to use the follow me function. I get to select the mode in the app, and apply it, but the drone only adjusts rotation and gimbal, but doesn't actually follow me (doesn't translate). Same thing happens in track.

    What am I missing? Anybody experience the same thing?

    Thanks for your help

    Have you got GPS enabled on your mobile device?
    "Follow Me" mode uses your mobile's GPS module to track.

    Thanks for the quick reply.

    Yes, i think so. The app is able to see me on the correct place on the map. So gps seems to work for phone and app...

    Any other ideas would be much appreciated...

    Do you get Mavic to see you first? Where it projects a green screen onto your image on the iPhone.

    Figured out active track. Was mostly my fault as i didn't press the green "OK" button.

    "Follow Me" still doesn't work for me though. Cant find any hidden buttons to activate it. For now I belive it to be a bug with the app.

    If anybody experience the same thing, or if it's working for you, please reply.

    Thanks

    It's not less relevant than your comment. We are all interested to know when we receive our orders, nothing wrong with asking.

    There are umpteen diatribes and threads about the delivery (or lack of) individuals Mavics, let's try and keep at least a few threads on topic and not go off at the usual (now flogged to death) tangent.
