DJI Mavic Mini Fly Safe Database can’t update, how to fix?

By  Adan Flannigan 2019-11-11 853 0

In the using process of DJI Mavic Mini, you will get a new Precise Fly Safe Database update notice. The Precise Fly Safe Database Update is DJI's way of updating their no-fly zones by way of geofencing. This is not related to firmware updates on your drone or remote controller.

DJI Fly Safe Updates on DJI Mavic Mini​ 

How to perform DJI Fly Safe Updates on DJI Mavic Mini?

Step 1: Turn on the remote controller before updating firmware.

Step 2: Connect your aircraft with your mobile device using the cable provided.

Step 3: Go to the DJI Fly APP "Settings" and tapping " about" at the bottom.

Step 4: On the about page, you will see Precise Fly Safe Database (for Aircraft), Precise Fly Safe Database (for App), and Basic Fly Safe Database. Tap on "check for update" for each of these to see if an update is available. A prompt will appear which you can follow if an update is available.

Step 5: Just a side note, the "Basic Fly Safe Database" update does not require you to connect your mobile device to the drone like the "Precise Fly Safe Database (for App)" does.

Pros and cons of updating the fly safe database


● You won’t have to tap that "ignore" button on that pesky notification anymore. Hey, that’s almost reason enough to update it ;).

● You won’t run the risk of being grounded if DJI one day decides to "punish" people who don’t update it.

● You will be less likely to accidentally fly somewhere where you’re not supposed to be.


● You may not be able to launch from your home or favorite takeoff location anymore.

● A newly geofenced area may cross a regular flight path of yours.

● The update may impede with your work if you’re using your drone for professional reasons.

What if DJI Fly Safe database update failed, how to do?

● Make sure that there is at least 50% battery left before beginning an update.

● Make sure your mobile phone compatible with DJI Fly APP.

● Switch to home wifi and check again.

● Switch to another iOS or Android devices to upgrade.

● Update the latest version of DJI Assistant 2.
