I have had a Mavic pro for a couple of months. I use my Samsung note 4 with the controller. I wanted a bigger screen so I used a Samsung tablet I had. Now the video on the screen, recording or not, pixelates as soon as I move the drone. Still pictures are OK. Whats up? I have done some searching and it may be the newest firmware does not support older android devices.??

You're probably on the right lines, the app has got ever more demanding and bloated, you could try an older version perhaps.
Make sure nothing else is running,and turn off video cache that helps quite a bit.
A *good* data cable in the large USB outlet is important.

Ive been having the same issues. When I first got Pro Platinum it was on point. No complaints at all. Pics would go to my phone ( Galaxy 7 Edge } and great flight responses. Then something changed. Pics will only save on Drone SD card and screen also has double and triple image pixeling. I changed to an old Note 4 that I totally wiped out. Except for the mandatory apps and ones I have disabled, it only is used for the drone. Still the same problems. No pics saved to device, screen pixeling and the response is slow from the camera.

What's the odds you can give me a step by step set of directions? Thanks for the reply.
It has been months since I did it so don't remember the steps but I found instructions on this forum. Just search for it. I remember a link to a YouTube video. It was not hard to do.

Be sure the device you are using is up to the task. Many Android devices are not compatible.
