Re: GoPro App: renaming of cameras

Hi @grayhero41684,

 

Yes. You just have to delete the camera on paired list and then pair it again on your phone. 

 

 

Thanks,

Re: GoPro App: renaming of cameras

I have tried all of what you have suggested, but the blue bar to confirm the change doesn't become enabled. Any other suggestions? Thanks

Re: GoPro App: renaming of cameras

Hi @thecarcissist

 

Try resetting the camera's Wi-Fi settings

Then proceed with the pairing process.

Please note that you may need to forget the Bluetooth ID on your mobile phone.

 

Let us know how it goes.

 

Thanks!

Ej
