Hello, first time poster and new Phantom pilot here.
I have used my Phantom 3 Advanced with my phone and regular tablet and it works fine, but the phone is too small and the tablet is a little too heavy for the controller.
I purchased a used Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 as a nice, middle ground compromise, but I can’t get the DJI Go app to open on it. I download the software and it gives me confirmation that it has installed, but when I try to open the app it freezes exactly seven seconds into the boot sequence and the screen goes blank. At exactly eleven seconds, the app closes and a message pops up to say “Unfortunately the DJI Go app has stopped.” This repeats in exactly the same pattern even after uninstalling and deleting the cache and memory files, and restarting the tablet.
I have tried deleting the app from Google Play and downloading the version 3.1.72 APK file directly from the DJI website (after selecting the Android feature allowing installation of third party apps) with the identical result.
I have tried installing older versions of the app from APKPure and the result is the same, until I install the pre-2015 versions. These also result in a freezing of the app at the title screen (right before the introductory promotional video can launch) with the difference that it takes a few seconds longer and an error message about an out of date map appears immediately before the app freezes. Once the error message stating “unfortunately the DJI Go app has stopped” is acknowledged, the older versions of the app immediately try to re-boot with the same result. This would seem to go on endlessly in a cycle of boot-freeze-crash-reboot unless I stop the app myself.
I have checked the DJI compatibility list and the Galaxy Tab 2 in my model is there. My specs:
Model: Samsung Galaxy Tab 2, GT-P3113
Android Ver 4.2.2
Kernel ver 3.0.31-1978026
