We are sorry to hear you had an issue using Map Pilot Pro. It sounds like there may have been other apps running in the background or issues getting a GPS fix. How many satellites did you have?
Since it sounds like the red triangle was not showing your location accurately that is the biggest problem here.
Did you open the DJI app to see how things were working there? Was it showing your position accurately?
Were all other apps FULLY closed on the iOS device?
