Error in No fly Zone, could not upload mission

I was in Glass G airspace, no FAA restrictions what so ever, no airport within 5-6 miles.  And I could not upload a mission.  Completely left me unable to do the job. Is there a way to remove the no fly zone restrictions in Map Pilot?  I am FAA certified and insured, I need to be able to make the decision of whether I'm in restricted airspace, not the app.  Especially when its 100% in error.

You can clear all flight restrictions in the Go app and then open Map Pilot. We plan on adding the GEOS system in the future but aren't in any huge rush since there is a decent workaround with DJI Go.

I understand that companies like yours and DJI have serious liability issues and you are trying to limit that, that's great.  However, if we are FAA certified, we know exactly where we can fly and can't fly, I check sectional maps and flight paths prior to every flight.  The area I was flying in yesterday was Class G airspace, no where near an airport flight patterns.  I have every legal right to fly from surface to 400 ft AGL.  But your app would not work, claiming a NFZ.  I had no problem with DJI GO app and was at least able to get some of the images the client needed, but not all.  The GEOS system in the DJI app is worthless if the boundaries are not consistent with the FAA's.  Hence, it would be worthless if you add it to Map Pilot.  A better solution would be to separate the yahoos from the certified commercial pilots.  Let us enter our FAA information and release you from liability.  Thanks for your time.

Companies like ours are using DJI's SDK software to talk to the aircraft and we have no control over when an aircraft is allowed to take off or not if the DJI software doesn't allow it. 

The DJI GEOS system data is maintained by AIRMAP (https://www.airmap.com/) so that is likely where the issue is. If you have a problem with how an area is classified, we have heard that they are pretty responsive to modification requests. The GEOS system reads their data and they can change their data quickly so you might be able to get that area cleared if you are correct.

If the issue is there it is something that DJI might be able to change too.
