GoPro app view is from rear lens

Using the GoPro app on a pixel 2 (Android V10)  the live view is using the rear lens sometimes. How to correct this to use the front lens?

Re: GoPro app view is from rear lens

Hi @jackk73061

 

Remove your camera entry from the GoPro App's history. 
Android: Open GoPro App. Press and hold the image of the camera and delete the entry from your camera history. 
iOS: Open GoPro App. Tap the pencil icon in the top-left corner of the Camera menu page. Tap the red X icon to delete the camera entry from your app’s history. 
Reset your camera’s Wi-Fi settings using the instructions HERE.
Delete the GoPro camera under the Bluetooth and Wi-Fi entries in your mobile device’s settings before attempting to re-pair to your GoPro using the instructions HERE.
Let me know how it goes.

 

Thanks!

Re: GoPro app view is from rear lens

Hi Aragon1006, I completed the camera and wifi reset and the results are the same which leads me to a possibly stupid question.

Which side is the "Front" of the camera? The side with the screen or the side with just a lens and the name? If it is the side with the screen the I had it mounted wrong.

 

Thanks, 

 

Jack

Hello @jackk73061. The front of the camera is the side with the screen.

Thanks. I figured that out. It just seems rather counter-intuitive.
