Notes on DJI Goggle Update Using Assistant 2 App
It is best to download the DJI Assistant 2 app and then log into the Assistant 2 app before connecting the DJI Goggles using the Micro USB cable. If you connect the DJI Goggles before logging into the Assistant 2 app, then the DJI Goggles may not appear in the Assistant 2 app.
Also if you receive a Driver Signing error in Windows 10 and the DJI Goggles are not showing in the Assistant 2 app, try the above procedure again. Disconnect your Goggles from the computer. Log out and back into the DJI Assistant 2 app. Then connect your Goggles and switch them on again.
If you still receive the error, then you may need to “disable driver signature verification” temporarily. If you search for “disable driver signature verification” in Google you will find the instructions.
