    Just tested (wel turned on drone and connected, didn't go out and fly). Seems like hight does work for me. But distance was not available.
    But that could be because I am inside without GPS.

    Distance does say n.a. for me as well.
    But height says 0.0 and when I move the drone it updates, but resets to zero after like a second or so.

    I am on a Nexus 6P with the latest Android update (Netherlands)

    Very exciting!!! I hope my new Android Samsung galaxy s5 does as well. Hopefully the maps can now be loaded offline as well. Please let me know if anyone figures out how that works.

    Yeah maps work offline as well you need to download you map area where you will be flying beforehand the new app is still using map box so you will need to cache it beforehand when your on your home WiFi. Everything worked absolutely perfect for me before it was windy as hell as well. I was so nearly considering selling my spark soon ad well I'm glad I've kept the little Sparkie Gee. Hahaha that's what I've named mine.

    While you are at home using your WiFi go into the map in the go 4 app and move around on the map and it caches the area to your device and saves the area in your phone

    How do you know what version you have. When I opened the GO 4 app tonight it says that it is the current version. I the went to the Go 4 app to the me button to the settings in the upper right hand corner and at the bottom of the page it says DJI GO 4 v4.2.8.

    You should be able to open Play store and look for updates and there should be one. If not, keep checking as I'm sure your phone/ device will detect it soon.

    That is the right place to look when you are in the DJI GO 4 app, though so it appears your app has not been updated yet.

    If you tap on the update description in the play store to see more info, at the bottom of the page you can see the version
