Instructions for downloading Measure Ground Control onto iOS, Android, Smart Controllers, and Crystal Sky devices

You can create an MGC account from both the web and mobile using standard logins or social login options. Both mobile and web experiences are similar, and you can reference this article for further instruction.

The Measure Ground Control (MGC) mobile app is available on iOS, Android, DJI Smart Controllers, and DJI CrystalSky devices. Unfortunately, MGC is not available on the P4P+ RTK display monitor at this time.

As the MGC mobile app is fairly resource-intensive, it is recommended that pilots use Apple devices that are not older than 5 years, or Android devices running Android 8 or newer.

iOS (iPad, iPhone)

The MGC mobile app can be downloaded for free from the Apple Store. It is recommended that users are connected to wi-fi when downloading the app to avoid incurring data charges.

Once the app has been downloaded, simply login into the app using the same username and password you used to log into the web application. NOTE: All users that signed up with standard email rather than a social login will be prompted to update their temporary credentials through the browser.
