Re: HERO5 Session Serial number

If you can connect to the GoPro app on a mobile device, you can go into settings and find it there.

Re: HERO5 Session Serial number

Also, if you use a USB/SD adapter and computer and have formatted the card in the camera, I believe there is a text file that is generated on the card. If you open the text file in notepad it should give you the serial number. You may need to turn, "show hidden files" on to see it. It's been awhile since I've checked, but this file has always been generated in the past.
