GoPro Session 4 and external mic

I have a GoPro Session 4 with an external mic, the gopro is not getting the audio from the mic. How do I fix this so I can get the audio from inside my helmet while on my.motorcycle.

HERO cameras (HERO (2018), HERO (2014), HERO+, HERO+LCD) and HERO4 Session do not have compatibility with external microphones.

Re: GoPro Session 4 and external mic

That is right so only way the OP can have a mic is to get the right camera, or mod a fish hose to one of the mics or hardwaire one.
