I have Maps installed. I am trying to sign into my Google account in the Maps settings. There is a page saying create an account, but it does not give me a page to allow either creating or signing in. I think this may be a DJI restriction.
There does not seem to be a settings/accounts page. I’ve looked through all the settings. Although th CS runs on Android, it seems to be pretty tightly locked down. I’m sure it can be hacked, but I’m not an Android user with any other of my devices.
Well, that sucks! I was a novice "hacker" 40 years ago but now I just want to play, I do not want to dig into the murky depths of Android. Apparently, there are many ways to root these devices, remove restrictions and even update the OS but, there is a risk of turning your device into a brick as well. Surly, others are successfully using the CS with Autel products or Thor's Drone World would not be bothering to make a mount for the CS on their Autel tablet holder.
I’ve reached out to most of the Autel FB pages. If someone has gotten maps to cache to the Explorer app, I’ll likely hear back. I will also contact Thor’s site. I know he makes mounts for the CS to the EVO rc, but I’m not sure if he ever looked at the map cache issue.
Yes, I’m aware, and those maps are cached, it’s just that I cannot get the Autel app to upload the data. There is obviously something missing, maybe a pref. file, but I do t know enough. I can download the apk map box and see what happens.
Wouldn't you need to alter the Explorer app to make it read and use Mapbox? It seems to me that it would be easier to get the OS to allow Google services. In fact, I wonder why Google would even allow their OS to be modified by dji such that Google Services are disabled.
