I have just unpacked and switched on my DJI goggles (FPV glasses from DJI) that I just delivered, but of course they want to be activated, like most devices these days. The two ways there are to activation are:
The software was completely unknown to me and since my Mavic was just charging, I looked for the DJI Assistant for the Mac. Sometimes you don't believe how hard it is to find such an easy download. After a few hits on forums and a 404 error on DJI.com itself, I finally found it.
To do this, go to the product page of a DJI quadrocopter such as the DJI Mavic Pro or the DJI Phantom 4 Pro and then click on "Downloads" in the top menu. The right URL for you would be, for example, this:
There in the right area you will find the link to the DMG for the Mac. I've marked it in the screenshot below. I hope this brings you to the right software. I would have linked the current version directly, but as soon as DJI releases a new version, the download link would no longer be correct ... that is also not the point.
Oh, another tip for Mac users: If you want to open the DMG, you get a message that this program does not come from a verified developer. You can avoid this message if you click on the file with the right mouse button and then select "Open". Then comes a similar dialog in which you then click "Open". During the installation you have to enter the admin password because the DJI installer also has a driver called "HoRNDIS" (driver for USB tethering; more information .) and then the software should be installed. You can then find it in the "Applications" folder under the name "Assistant.app"
Now I activate the DJI goggles and grab the Mavic for my first FPV flight! I will then report how it went! : D
