I had 18 sats, was above 34 feet and it would not "follow me"

It came up with a message about "poor satellite reception" or something like that and would not let me to follow me.

Latest version of Go 4 and latest firmware on Mavic and controller. I was using iPhone 7 Plus. Any ideas? YES, altitude was not shown in red.

Thank you !

Follow me mode works on the GPS of your device. Is it possible your phone did not have the best GPS reception? Do you have a a 'high accuracy' setting?

Why is this text so massive? It doesn't need to take up my screen. As for follow me, your phone's GPS reception may have been poor.

What carrier do you have?
There are many of us that have a nice new iPhone 7 or 7 plus but are stuck with an inferior modem (intel) that does not have a strong enough gps signal to work with the dji app. Our carrier won't let us change phones to one that works -AT&T---
