Riaan: We replied to your message yesterday warning that you might not want to update your firmware if you don't have to. Please make sure that our email addresses are whitelisted with your email provider so you are sure to get our replies in a timely manner.
The updated firmware has new restrictions that require authorization with DJI to clear. We are working on updating things now.
Please read here for the workaround:
You don't run DJI Go in the background. You have to close Map Pilot, start DJI Go, close DJI Go and then restart Map Pilot. We are working on a fix.
