5Ghz WiFi Channel 161 unusable in Europe

I've seen this beeing reported back in August 2017 and I want to bump this issue with this topic. 

 

As in the title, channel 161 in 5Ghz is not used in Europe, which makes GoPro 5Ghz connection unsuable. It's not hard to change a channel, why was this not addressed yet? 

 

Here's a link with a list of Channel Support per Country, you can see that most of them don't use channel 161.

I really hope something will be finally done about it soon...

I ordered a few days ago, and we do not have a permit for channel 161.
They've already changed it? And why did gopro send out if they knew she could not reach the client?😱

Unfortunetly not, you can use 2.4 Ghz connection while we wait for this 161 channel to be changed.

So how did they send? If it can not go in because it's 161
