Re: Android can't connect to go pro "We can't connect to your go pro" error

@mariustanya hi! Yes tried changing the wi-fi band resetting all connection from my camera, forgetting the wifi and bluetooth of the camera on my phone, clearing the data and cache of my Gopro app and still it doesnt connect with my camera. Please try to test it with my phone and android version. Maybe this is a problem limited to the phone model and android version. Thanks for the feedback.
