GoPro HERO5 - Can I turn off the LCD Screen ?

Hi,

Is it possible to turn off the LCD Screen ? At least when I'm recording. 

It turn off automatically after 1 min but it's 1 min useless use of battery. I would like to turn it off completly.

Thanks.

Good question
You can also reduce the brightness to the minimum until you get an answer.

+1 too.

I even updated the firmware, but no option to be found regarding the LCD... it drains a lot of battery and produces a lot of heat!

Learn how to turn Off/On the GoPro HERO4 display, well using the lCD, or when using the front LCD panel. Simple quick and easy video. Hope this helps for all...

It's must have option! I'm wondering that it's still not available in menu.

Turning off the back screen is not currently an option, but there is an option that might help out. You can set your screensaver for as little as 1 minute. When that minute is up, the back screen does go black.

 

Thanks,
Jeff

Not in water. Launch a firmware with the option now
