    Mavic Firmware Update Steps

    1. Install the DJI Assistant 2 on your PC or Mac. Link >Here<
    2. Launch the Assistant 2 Software
    3. Ensure the Mavic has a charged battery
    4. Plug the Mavic into the computer with a USB Micro cable
    5. Turn on the Mavic Pro (Don’t forget to remove the gimbal brace from behind the gimbal)
    6. Select your Mavic Pro in the Assistant 2 Software
    7. Select the firmware update you would like to install in this case it was V01.03.0200
    8. Click Start Update

      1. The Software downloads the firmware update you selected
      2. The Software transfers the firmware update to the Mavic Pro
      3. The Software then finally installs/updates the firmware update onto your Mavic Pro
    10. Finally, when the updated firmware is successfully installed you will receive the following screen

    Please note you may not be finished! The remote control and the batteries could also require updating. Read on!

    1. Ensure the remote control is fully charged.
    2. Connect the remote control to the PC or Mac using the microUSB cable you used for updating the Mavic Pro
    3. Power on the remote control
    4. Launch the Assistant 2 Software
    5. Select the “RC for Mavic Pro”
    6. Select the firmware you would like to updated onto your remote control

    1. I’ve tried to upgrade from x.0300 to x.0500 several times over the past few days, using both the DJI Go4 app on my iPhone, and the Assistant 2 app on my Mac, and it always gives up the ghost after either 69% (DJI Go) or 55% (Assistant 2). No clue what I am doing wrong, or what the issue is.

      • Hi James, Thanks for your comment. We would recommend erasing the and any other files related to DJI on your Mac. Re-Download the Assistant from here. If this doesn’t solve the issue we have heard reports of people successfully deleting their DJI GO App, rebooting, and re-downloading the App, then retrying. Lastly, you could reach out to DJI here. Hope you get it updated!

    2. Hey Felix, does this DJI Mavic Pro Firmware Update have to be done on a Mac? I have an old windows machine and its not upgrading

      • Hi David, the firmware update doesn’t have to be done on a mac. We just use a Mac primarily which is why the screenshots were mac based. The assistant is also available for pc at the links found above in the article. If you already have the assistant 2 downloaded, uninstall the application, reboot the computer, reformat the microSD card in the mavic(backup images first) and then try re-downloading the assistant 2 from the above links. Hope that helps!

    4. If my batteries and controller are attached to the charger and are fully charged, if I look for firmware updates will the batteries AND the controller receive any updates simultaneously ? Im new to this and didn’t realise that the batteries might have firmware too. Sorry if this is a dumb question.

      • hey Ted thats a great question. So whichever battery is in the drone will receive the battery firmware update as well when you do the update. Just make sure you reboot everything after the update and power it back up as is, to make sure you don’t get an incremental follow-up update. I normally notice that batteries are out of update when i get an inconsistent firmware update message. After successfully updating the firmware just power off and place your other batteries in the drone. If after a minute or so no firmware message pops up you should be good to go. No message appears when there is no battery update. Hope that helps!
