I tried wired, cellular and wifi. After about 20 tries, I finally got the m2p to update. The controller would download the update 100%, but then it wouldnt install. When I tried flying today, the controller updated. All done, but a huge pain in the ***.Use a wired or cellular connection, not wifi. If you have no other option than wifi look whether your router is 2.4GHz or 5, and manually select the other in the M2's transmission settings.
This sounds crazy but I went to another location, used my wife’s iPad and Boom....... it worked.
Thanks for the info, i will try this when i get back..... As i said I'm new to this and don't want to mess it up. Cheers.Looks like downloading the DJI Assistant 2 for Mavic 2 [v2.0.2] worked for me.
Don't get the Assistant 2 for the Mavic or any of the earlier drones. Those apparently won't work with the Mavic 2. So make sure you download the one for the Mavic 2 (see DJI link DJI Mavic 2 downloads).
I connected the drone to my Mac via a USB-C cable direct to the port on the side of the drone.
My firmware was the original 'in the box' firmware and the 'DJI Assistant 2 for Mavic' software listed two possible upgrades :
Firmware v01.00.0100 (latest)
I decided to upgrade to Firmware v01.00.0000 first and this took about 5 minutes.
I restarted the drone and was prompted to update the 'No Fly database'. I confirmed the update.
I then started on Firmware v01.00.0100 and this took about 5 minutes also. I then restarted the drone and was prompted to update the No Fly database again which i confirmed.
It seems that each time you connect the drone, the system will prompt you to upgrade the No Fly Database even though you've already done this just a few minutes ago. You can choose to confirm or ignore it.
All is well now.
