Hero 5 disconnects from iPhone when in Karma Grip

I recently picked up a Karma grip for my Hero 5. Everytime I put the Hero 5 in the grip it disconnects from my phone. If I start with the Hero 5 in the grip it doesn't ever show up at all. It is like stuck in a version of USB Connect mode? I really like using my iPhone as a larger screen when filimng. I'm running a Hero 5 current firmware, Karma grip current firmware and iPhone XSMax current app. Any ideas?

Hi @spirystar6151

 

The camera will prioritize the Karma grip connection over the GoPro app.

 

 

Thanks!
