Hero 5 Session external audio wont work

So I recently bought this GoPro to attach my external mic directly to it. But I have found that it will record the first video fine, but each from then on records the first milisecond of audio then doesnt record audio after that. Ive seen that people mention different mic input options, although I find that none have helped in this situation. I also o not want to have to unplug my mic and plug it in again all the time as it is now no longer serving the purpose i bought it for. 

 

Is GoPro working on a solution for this? what else can be done about this as it is very frustrating

Re: Hero 5 Session external audio wont work

gopro   gave us the option to use a mic.     non powered mic will not work unless you keep the camera  on, so  it is an extra step each time.    

 

 gopro said its a future fix.  wish them the best of luck when its 6 months of the sound trouble and hte last  firmware in April never touched the sound fix
