DJI Launches New Firmware Version 01.04.0500 For Mavic Users
DJI recently launched a new firmware that powers the Mavic Pro. Few months after their last release of their upgrade last July, the company launched their newest version, the v01.04.0500.
According to DJI, the update v01.04.0500 on the firmware will not affect any performance on both the drone and its controller. However, the update is clearly centered to DJI Goggles which is done through the drone itself. The process of updating the DJI Goggle’s firmware will allow compatibility of the goggles with DJI’s new set of drones, the Mavic 2 Zoom and the Mavic 2 Pro. Let’s take a look on the details on the new v01.04.0500 update.
DJI Firmware Update Details
Released by DJI yesterday, September 3, the firmware version v01.04.0500. This is aimed for the DJI GO 4 for iOS users running with the DJI GO 4 app version v4.3.0 for iOS v4.3.0 and DJI GO 4 v4.3.0 for Android users.
The main reason point of the DJI’s latest firmware update was the compatibility with DJI Goggles. Another key point for the update is the added support to the latest generation drones from the company, the DJI Mavic 2 Pro and the Mavic 2 Zoom.
Things to Know Before We Update
Few important notes that we need to take note before we update to the v01.04.0500. You have to be very sure that you are 100% committed to the update since for now, once the firmware was updated to the v01.04.0500, DJI don’t have an option yet to downgrade to a former version.
Another important note to remember before the update is the main controller settings. Some of the user defined settings such as RTH Altitude and the Maximum Flight Distance will be set back to default. We highly suggest to get your settings and change it once the update is completed.
If the upgrade attempt fails, don’t fret and just restart the whole process. Power cycle your remote control, restart your drone and relaunch your DJI GO 4 or your DJI Assistant 2 and retry the whole process.
