Connecting

Bonjour,

 Lorsque je connecte ma gopro hero 5 black sur mon téléphone (android) via l'application gopro, je dois mettre le GPS de mon téléphone. Par soucis d'économie de batterie, je voudrai connecté ma camera sans avoir a mettre le gps.

Pouvez vous m'aider svp?

 

Merci

 

 Jean-David

Re: Connecting

Hello @jeandavidg23. There is no way to connect your camera to your Android phone via GoPro App without enabling the location services. All versions of Android currently running the GoPro App must have Location Services enabled on your phone/device in order for the GoPro App to successfully scan for cameras. Enabling any level of location services will enable Wi-Fi scanning, so you can use ‘Battery Saving’ location mode to conserve battery life. Best regards!
