Hero 3+ recording from app

Hello,

Ive got a hero 3+, if I start recording from the app and the camera goes out of range, does the camera continue to record? or will it stop recording?

Thanks in advance.

Re: Hero 3+ recording from app

@kieranb2160, when your GoPro camera gets disconnected from the GoPro App while recording, the camera will continue to record and will not stop unless you manually press the Shutter button to end the recording. Anyhow, you'll be able to control the camera again as normal when it reconnects during this process. Additionally, the SD card capacity and battery life can affect the recording time of the camera.
