The usual notes:
Once the firmware has been updated, it cannot be downgraded to a former version. Restart the
aircraft and remote controller after upgrade is complete.
Please note that firmware update may reset various Main Controller Settings, such as the RTH Altitude and
Maximum Flight Distance, to factory defaults. Before the update, take note of your preferred DJI GO 4

We’ll see what version 01.04.0400 actually does once we’ve performed the update. It’s nice that DJI has released a new firmware for the Mavic Pro, Mavic Pro Platinum and DJI Goggles all at once vs staggering the releases as firmware incompatibilities might have introduced issues between the drones and goggles.
As with any firmware release, I recommend you update at your earliest
convenience and remember to update everything (remote, drone and
batteries). There are several methods you can use to update your
devices however I’ve found the most successful method is to use your USB
cable and connect the drone directly to your computer and use the DJI
Assistant app to perform the update. Repeat for each battery you have
and finally your remote control.
I’m charging my remote and batteries now and will perform the update later this afternoon.
If you have any more insight into this update or need assistance with
installing it, please feel free to leave a comment below. I read them
all and will respond.
