    Hi Kai,

    There are no RTK settings available on the iOS version of Pix4Dcapture. Then you won't be able to make any adjustments for it from our application. The RTK settings can probably be adjusted form the native drone application.

    hi gael,


    if i understand correctly, there is no possibility in pix4d (ios version) to see if rtk is active or not active ?

    so i have to switch between the drone application and pix4d (ios) like in ctrl+dji and pix4d (android) for rtk settings ?

    Hi Kai, 

    My previous answer may have been confusing. Actually, the P4P RTK is not officially supported by Pix4Dcapture so we can not guarantee that it will work using it. It means that we did not test it with our application and in this way, we don't recommend using it.

    Hi ,
    When I use Pix4d Capture for aerial mapping, there is an error. I can't see the map clearly. It's cloudy. So I can't create a flight plan well. How can I solve it.

    Hello, Kyaw,

    The default basemap provider for Pix4Dcapture is Mapbox and it can be limited in some areas where indeed you will see clouds or it won't be up to date. Note that only the basemap provider is responsible for this and you have the ability on Pix4Dcapture to set another basemap provider or even add a custom one. I suggest you read the procedure here.

    Hi, I'm having trouble connecting the dji air to pix4capture using iPhone 7. I have installed the dji 4 go, program the mission and after starting does not connect, in the checklist drone information not connected. In the dji go it takes off. someone can help me. thanks

    Hi Filipe, 

    The behavior you are describing has not been reported to us so far. As a first step, I would suggest you go through all the basic checks and troubleshooting steps as it will solve most of the issues that can be encountered if properly followed.

    You should not run the DJI 4 Go app in the background while running the Pix4Dcapture app. You have to close it so that there won't be conflict during the connection process.

    Buenas noches gracias por su atención, me podria indicar como cargar un KML O UN KMZ en la aplicación para los iphone ya que para programar varios vuelos es necesario en un mismo proyecto.

    Como hago varios planes de vuelo en un mismo proyecto en los iphones

    gracias por su atencion.


  • Kapil (Pix4D)


    You can't upload the KML/KMZ file on the iOS version of the Pix4Dcapture app. This feature is only available on the android version of Pix4Dcapture.
