Recommended Third-Party Mobile Apps

Other mobile apps Measure recommends to help you get the most out of your drone flights

All of the mobile apps listed here are free to download and available for both iOS and Android devices.

DJI GO 4

iOS | Android

Because firmware updates for DJI aircraft can only be performed using DJI GO 4 or DJI Pilot (below), we recommend downloading the app(s) ahead of time for smooth updating. DJI Go 4 is used to operate the DJI Spark, Mavic series, Phantom series, and Inspire series aircraft. 

Note: In order to use the MGC Mobile App DJI GO 4 cannot be running on the same device. Please make sure to close DJI GO 4 before commencing flight operations using the MGC Mobile App

DJI Pilot

iOS | Android

The stock flight application for industrial DJI drones. Used to operate the DJI Matrice 100, 200, 210, and 600 series aircraft. Firmware updates for DJI aircraft can only be performed using DJI Pilot or DJI GO 4 (above).

Note: In order to use the MGC Mobile App DJI Pilot cannot be running on the same device. Please make sure to close DJI Pilot before commencing flight operations using the MGC Mobile App.

Note: Flight logs from DJI Pilot cannot currently directly sync to Ground Control via logsync. Only flight logs from DJI Go can currently sync via logsync to Ground Control.

AirMap 

iOS | Android

Measure has partnered with AirMap to offer users real-time airspace checking features in the MGC Mobile App. Through an integration with AirMap, the MGC Mobile App provides key AirMap features directly in-app, including airspace maps, advisories and warnings, and weather information.

Measure Ground Control relies on AirMap to request LAANC authorizations. The MGC Mobile App cannot independently request LAANC authorizations unless the AirMap app is also installed on that device. We recommend downloading AirMap and creating an account ahead of time to prevent delays when you're on the job.
