So I was flying my mavic off the boat today like usual and kept loosing the video feed and when I had it, it was very glitchy. It would get 15 feet away and then cut out but it showed full bars on the screen. Nothing has changed in my spot or the boat.

Came home did a software update and tried flying around my house which I usually do without a problem. Video was doing the same thing, and giving me a video interference message.

Any ideas on what is going on since nothing in either spot has changed.??

That problem got so bad for me on my Android tablet that I finally broke down and got a CrystalSky monitor. I have a feeling the further along we get with phone/tablet and DJI hardware/software updates the more problems like these will occur. Yes, it might be your cable or connection, but it's equally likely that nothing is going to work as well as a full DJI system.

I would just like to mention, the crystal sky IS an android tablet.With a bright screen. It is just stripped of the ability to easily load non flight related apps that normally cause the issues.

Ok so I replaced the cable, also did the full factory reset of the tablet. Still having the problem. Tried two tablets and a phone. Dji said I need to send it back but dont want it gone for the rest of the summer. Any suggestions on other places to send it to get it looked at. Also kind of discouraged that i have had it for 8 months no crashes and already have to send it out and pay money.

I guess DJI doesn't want to admit that their constant, buggy, Go 4 updates are causing problems. Your described symptoms are classic Go 4 update glitches. It happened to me; one day flew fine, the next day unusable video feed. Both days from the exact same location. Turned out that an auto-update to Go 4 was the problem. I downgraded Go 4, turned off auto-updates, and have not had problems since. That was over a year ago and I am still flying using my underpowered Android tablet. I am now reading that some iDevices are having problems with Go 4 so it is no longer an Android problem. Another option you might consider is installing Litchi or other control program.
