No cell coverage saving project in field no working

Today I was working in a no cell coverage area, or very weak signal at times and was unable to save my planned mission.  The mission could only be planned in the field since I had to fly stockpiles for volumes measurements.  After walking the perimeter and putting GCP's, I had my mission planned but then couldn't save it.  The purpose to save it is to shut down MP so I can use DJO go to start flight checks, then go back to MP and open the mission.  This did not work at all.  I had to re-walk the perimeters and create a new plans, this time I did not close MP but left it open and started my flight directly from MP without using DJI Go first.  This was the only work around but not ideal.  The mission would start to save and get about 3/4 done and then just stop there without progress.  Waited for several minutes and then gave up and cancelled it.  Tried a few times without success.  There was no warnings or popups at all.  Any idea why this is happening?

Sorry to hear about the issues but his is a bit of a weird case. I wonder if the weak signal was worse than no signal at all. Map Pilot is able to save planned missions in Airplane mode (no connectivity). After a few warnings that things are not being downloaded the mission is saved and is available in the Mission Manager list. Did you check there? In this situation you might have to just give up on downloading the background basemap data and switch the data connection all the way off in order to save the planned mission.

I went out today and did more jobs and you are correct about the airplane mode.  This time if the cell coverage was weak or non-existent, I just went to airplane mode and it worked just fine.  Maybe if the signal is too weak it just gets confused trying to save.  Anyhow thanks for the reply much appreciated. have a great Christmas
