Activating Your DJI OM 4

    1. Clean the back of the phone with the Wet Cleaning Wipe included.

    4. Use the plastic “alignment guide” and place it on the back of your phone to get the dead central position of your phone – this is where you’ll want to stick the magnetic ring.

      Please note – the adhesives used to attach the magnetic ring can take 12 hours to dry, so leave it at least overnight to make sure there’s a strong bond between the magnetic ring and your phone before using your OM 4.
