I agree with the comments made to GoPro by many customers over a long period of time, that they should deliver connectivity to the built-in microphone in Bluetooth helmets. It’s a big disappointment that this hasn’t yet been done, despite all the strong support for this development from GoPro’s loyal customers.

Why on Earth does it not support bluetooth. Just bought my camera yesterday, but will return it if this turns out to be the issue. I do wilderness blooging and Im absolutley depending on beeing able to have a external wireless microphone then I place the camera a distance away from we in windy conditions or with a lot of background noise.
Shame on Go Pro.

I don’t know the basis for the comment that GoPro are likely to go bust, but their failure to respond to this thread does suggest that they are not interested in the needs of their customers and that they may not be investing sufficiently in R & D. It’s too late for me to take my GoPro back, but I’m beginning to regret buying it. One vlogger that I follow on YouTube - The Missenden Flyer - uses a GoPro 4 rather than a Hero 7 Black because it has a simpler, more streamlined solution for using an external microphone. It’s not promising when newer technology has fewer or worse features than the technology it replaces.
Also, the GoPro Hero 7 Black does not interface with the BMW Navigator satnav on my motorcycle, whereas other action cameras do - an important safety feature.

What we should do is get together and make a YouTube video about it. My channgel is YMSETJENSTA. I guess threads like this will be closed down.
I also believe that a lot of the vlogger that gave the camera good review had benifts from Go Pro. But just send me a message on youtube and we could have a global collab on youtube. That would be awesome.
I also feel that I wasted 200 dollars on the instamic.

But you know what, you all are right! A company selling a product that doesn't fit your need, and that doesn't list your need as a feature, are horrible and shameful! BOOO GoPro BOOOO! Creating, and then advancing the Action Camera market year after year while also giving back to communities and less fortunate through GoPro for a cause, easily makes GoPro the worst company ever!
And, did you hear? The nerve of GoPro! I have no idea what the specifics are or what really was entailed, BUT THAT EVIL company GoPro didn't accept a specific 3rd party codec to allow a specific 3rd party company to exclusively be able to provide a bluetooth solution for GoPro cameras! Shame! This company, with all the goodness in their heart, just wanted to give to GoPro with no personal return in site. And mean old GoPro just spat in their face. For no reason either! Just for the fun of spitting in people's faces. I know this just like all of you because, well, because I just know everything. Just like you guys! Harrumph Harrumph Harrumph!
And look at how GoPro ignores us! If I didn't have my woobie to comfort me, the separation anxiety would be overwhelming!
I mean sure, this is a member to member support community and yes, GoPro moderators did reply to this thread....BUT I WANT MORE!!! I didn't hear what I wanted to hear so I'm going to say something completely false to make myself feel better. Something that sounds smart, like, "their failure to respond to this thread does suggest that they are not interested in (MY) needs"!!!!!
Come on guys, agree with me to make me feel better. We should make videos together! Come on guys, we could work out first and oil up so our muscles are bulging! We could make mean faces into the camera! I'm an aging old man, but I look tough....like an outlaw on my motorcycle! Grrrr, Give me my Bluetooth GoPro! I need to motorvlog!
I'm sure nobody has ever thought of, or ever mentioned wanting Bluetooth mic support in a video before. We can be sooo original!
I FEEL SOOOO IGNORED! X (
Honestly. I went out and blindly purchased something that made absolutely no claim to be able to do what I wanted it to do, and you know what???!!!!!
IT DOESN'T DO IT!!!! I AM SOOO ANGRY!!!!
And, to make matters worse. Even though GoPro hasn't released their new cameras yet (Expected Sept/Oct 2019), I just know in my gut that they are making absolutely NO progress on this! Why haven't they come over to my house and fixed my camera yet?!!! They never said it could connect to my bluetooth devices....SO IT SHOULD! NOW!!!!
