Gopro Hero 6 wifi wrong password?

got my new gopro direct from gopro last night. connected it to my phine last night, had a good play and downloaded pictures, all sweet

 

this morning i have done a stupid time lapse video of drive to work. got a sandisk extreme U3 32Gb card in it.

 

stopped film, only a 20 min drive on 1 s lapse.

 

tried to connect via app and its claiming wrong password. remove batter and try again, same. reset all connections, so new password, try and add new device, after deleting original pairing same thing.... the password is displayed... it doesn't work.

 

done factory reset on gopro, same thing, tried airplane mode and a reboot on iphone7, same.

 

help?!?!?

Re: Gopro Hero 6 wifi wrong password?

i can't get my Hero 6 to connect to my iPhone7 either. I can get it to accept the wifi password & connect, but the app doesn't detect it & won't change from the "connect to wifi" page. My android Samsung tablet connected perfectly

Odd though that it was fine last night.

Re: Gopro Hero 6 wifi wrong password?

Gopro phone support said that they have same issue at their office due to too many WiFi networks.

Sure enough, get home and everything rosy. No need for manual firmware update.

Bit crap though if using indoors
