Re: Fusion Battery drains while turned off.

Did factory reset.... then connected to gopro app. And turned off the fusion. But still the wifi makes connection. I do not want to take out the battery.... is there no "hard off" possible with the buttons? This is annoying, if I don't want the battery to drain, I have to turn off wifi, gps and what else.... Then next day, have to turn it all on again.... quite amateurism!

Re: Fusion Battery drains while turned off.

dit a factory reset, then setup the camera again, and when the fusion is off, it still connects to wifi... and drains the battery when shut down. Is there a total hard off possible?

Re: Fusion Battery drains while turned off.

I take out the battery whenever it isn't used. It is quite annoying. Any update for this issue?

Re: Fusion Battery drains while turned off.

you say same with black 7, do you also have a remote? That did it for me.... the remote goes into a sleep mode and keep connecting to the camera, which drains the battery, if you turn the remote really off, than the battery in the camera stays full
