Can't connect my go pro hero 6 black to my Huawei Honor 7

What i have tried: Can't find the go pro under 'Available networks', nor through the go pro app and i've tried altering between on and off combinations of wifi, bluetooth and gps. 

  • wifi & location on, bluetooth off: app stays "searching for cameras..."
  • wifi, location & bluetooth on: app switches from "searching for cameras..." to "connecting..." after a short while but then this comes up "Please enter the password for GoPro****. If your camera is new or you reset it, the app can connect using default password."
  • I enter the password that comes up on ther screen when you enter to connect the app from the camera, but mobile screen stays "connecting..." and after a while the same 'password prompt' screen comes up.

Camera Model and firmware version: HERO6 v01.60

Phone Model: Huawei Honor 7

Mobile OS: Android 6.0

Carrier: Vodafone MT 

GoPro App version: 4.2 (5439)
