I have 1 simple question which has been asked a ton of times already but since there's new models announced I was wondering if GoPro will finally support any bluetooth enabled headset as an external microphone?
In my case I would like to use the Schuberth SCU10 motorcycle communication system as a microphone.
The headset is built-in to my helmet. The camera would be on my handlebar.
I do not wish to use any adapters as that will make my camera not waterproof anymore.

The Bluetooth connection of the HERO7 is not compatible for audio devices or external microphones.
This is mainly for the GoPro app and some GoPro devices (ex. Remo, Smart Remote).

I was thinking about buying the 7th Gen of GP but since it's still not compatible with external devices I have to skip it as well like the last ones. Will stick to my GP Hero 4 Black + Sena BT Device until GP will fix this.

It would be sweet if GoPro could support the BlueTooth signal from the Hooke Verse 3D binaural BlueTooth mics. Best sounding mics I have used and what I currently use with my H7B via the huge ProMicAdapter brick.
Imagine the possibilities that this would create for your H7B market. Gosh, we could even put the H7B on a gimbal and not have to listen to the whirl of the gimbal motors.
Sure, battery life would be even less with the additional BT drain, but then most professionals use external USB power packs anyway to run our GoPros.

@Ej - What exactly does this mean:
"Rest assured this has been raised to the team in charge."
Because the team in charge has known how badly the user community wants this feature since the Hero 5. Countless posts exist in this and other forums on the topic dating back for years. There's been no action on the issue - not even a statement with any real content in it - on the matter from GoPro, ever.
If you're passing along messaging you can include this: I will NEVER purchase that awful audio adpater for the 5/6/7. *NEVER*. It's a hideous brick that forces me to lose all the sealing on my camera. The price just adds to the insult. I record audio via Bluetooth to my phone (in my waterproof pocket) and sync it up later. Takes 30 seconds in any editor.
Whatever accesory sales you guys think you're protecting by not implementing this feature are imaginary IMHO. Meanwhile the Garmin VIRB already has this feature (and you know the Yi guys will be on it too) which is causing me to seriously think about returning my Hero 7...

LMAO at the GoPro Team response "Rest assured this has been raised to the team in charge."
I say BS because Hooke Verse has been trying to send GoPro their Hooke Verse codec for 3 years and, I quote "GoPro has never expressed an interest, but we (Hooke) will keep trying".
WTF, here is a company willing to share their amazing bluetooth mic & codec engineering skills with you .... and GoPro just ignores them.
All I can say is shame on you Nick.
