Massively disappointing as I get every new version that comes out and they have always been great out of the box. Sadly not this one though.
Any help would be appreciated.

I contacted Gopro and they just told me to do a manual update by downloading the latest version on a pc computer to a sd card, then insert into the camera that way.
Not sure why that's different to the App version.
Sadly I don't even think my pc will turn so I might be up a creek !
The wind option is in the same menus as the colour, frame rate etc
Here's a link to a comparison I did between the 8 and 7 black

Yeah, the 8 sounds like crap. Every Youtube video I have seen though shows the GP 8 having great mics. I just got my GP 8 today, but already having an issue with it. Some crazy blue dot on the screen that moves around as I move the camera.

From looking into the audio issue on YouTube it seems to be everyone who uses it for mountain biking had the same problem.
Guess it's just a £400 vlogging camera now and not an action camera

Has anyone tried stickover or micover products from Amazon for wind noise suppresion?
I've seen SnowboardProCamp on YouTube uses something similar and covers his GoPro 8 in some sort of dead cat material.
To see what I mean search YouTube for SnowboardProCamp 2020 Snowboard Gear Part 2 - GoPro's, Essentials & Backcountry
Have a look 50 seconds into his video. I've attached a screenshot of the setup.
If anyone knows where to get that materail from, please let us know.
