    I've been using my Ipad 9.7 since day one with few issues and great display. During my last two flights, the Ipad times out after a minute and goes to home screen. A problem if you're in a delicate place or there's other traffic. Seems like an Ipad issue, but looking for help.

    I'm pretty new at both any Apple product and my Mavic.

    Also, please explain the difference between Wi-Fi and GPS flying.

    Thanks

    Howdy from Wyoming BeachSideFlyer, welcome to the community, plenty of fine folk and excellent information here. I am not familiar with iOS but there are many on this forum who will be able to help you out.

    Thanks a lot Bunny Too,
    Everything I've seen so far is impressive. Knowledgeable people out there. The more I read, the less I know.

    It sounds like the app is crashing rather than "timing out".

    What iOS version are you using?

    Hello,
    It is a pleasure to welcome you to the Mavic Pilots forum.
    I hope that you will be able to use the forum to further your safety knowledge and for the exchange of innovative ideas and as a resource for current developments in Mavic quadcopters.

    Some other members have complained that the app has been crashing. Yours may be also. Hopefully a fix is on its way.

    Enjoy! Thumbswayup

    Welcome to Mavic Pilots! :)

    You seem to be describing two completely unrelated features. Can you give us some more details?
