Featured image for DJI Mavic 3 recieves feature rich update: Tele camera RAW, possible GPS fix

Overnight DJI has released a new firmware for DJI Mavic 3 taking it to v01.00.0700 with a bunch of new features, improvements, and what seems to be a permanent fix for the GPS issues that have been plaguing the drone from launch.

Firmware versions:

  • Aircraft: v01.00.0700
  • RC-N1 controller: v04.13.0600
  • DJI RC Pro controller: v03.01.0700
  • DJI Fly (iOS): v1.6.4
  • DJI Fly (Android): v1.6.4

GPS fix

DJI haven't mentioned a fix for the GPS issues in the release notes, but from DroneDJ's test, the issues look to be gone. There is also a video to go along with the test. DroneDJ was also able to verify its results with Mavic 3 users in other regions.

We were able to test the firmware out today after installing and giving the Mavic 3 a few hours to be in a completely cold state. When we started the drone up with a fresh battery, it was able to connect to 11 satellites and produce a home point lock within a minute – much faster than what we could do over the last few months.

  • Added switch to the tele camera in photo mode, includes single shot, AEB, burst and timed shot, supports JPEG, RAW, JPEG+RAW photo format, and ISO and shutter speed settings.
