Hi All - I'm interested in getting a GoPro for family videos surfing/wakeboarding behind our boat.
Another usage that would be very helpful is if I could use the GoPro as a live view back-up cam to help see what's behind the boat as our boat launch is almost a 90deg turn and difficult to see around the boat. How good is the wifi range and connectivity? I imagine I could attach the GoPro to the tower in the middle of the boat and use my cell phone inside the truck to see what's going on behind the boat live. The distance would be ~30ft.
Do certain model GoPro suit themselves better for this application?
Thanks in advance!
PS - I tried using a cheap costco adventure cam w/ WiFi and this feature worked fine if you were within 10ft of the device, but basically lost signal beyond this distance.
