Re: Gopro Hero 6 / Fusion Bluetooth microphone support?

If you read the instructions you can actually use the GoPro app to connect directly to Bluetooth, but it only supports certain headsets apparently. I found that out the hard way. So you have to connect both to your phone via Bluetooth, not Wi-Fi, and then use the app to connect the Bluetooth with the camera...it's an annoying path to take.

Re: Gopro Hero 6 / Fusion Bluetooth microphone support?

Yeah, and this is stupid. There is non reason whatsoever not to allow people to connect their bluetooth microphones to their GoPro. I cannot understand why they haven't allowed us to do this yet. It only takes some coding and a firmware update.

 

Watch out, GoPro. Other companies are starting to catch up and you will lose customers if you start having this kind of restrictive behavior.

@mariustanya

Any update on this?

 

There's a pretty long list of people who'd be happy to have working external microphone support.

Re: Gopro Hero 6 / Fusion Bluetooth microphone support?

This is a very important issue.
Gopro customers are consuming a lot of energy to solve audio problems.
We pay a lot of time and money and try to solve the problem.
Please do not regret that we have chosen Gopro products.
Customers are not that patient.
Gopro has opened a new world.
I hope so in the future.

Re: Gopro Hero 6 / Fusion Bluetooth microphone support?

Has there been any progress on this matter yet? One invests into a camera that seems to be insulated against water etc, but when I want to use another microphone, and not the truly bad microphone inside, I only have two impossible options: lose the insulation by opening the necessary port and plugging in a cable that disables also my gimbal or opt for an insufficient audio quality that disallows me from making good videos. I urge you to work on Bluetooth mic compatibility.

This is a seriously important and basic feature that needs to be added to the app or GoPro firmware. Will make the vlogs so easy.
