Ok... I bought a Hero 7 Black and the horrible, bulky Promic adapter.
I updated the fimware on my Hero 7.
I tried to use two mics, a Rode VideoMicro and a cheapie lapel mic, which both work with other devices.
One has a TS plug, one has a TRS plug.
Neither of these worked. There's no audio when the adapter is plugged in.
I contacted support.
I did a manual fimware update. No joy.
Gopro sent me another ProMic adapter, same results.
I got told I needed a TRRS - TRS adapter.
I got told I didn't need a TRRS - TRS adapter.
GoPro replaced the camera.
I manually upgraded the firmware.
Still nothing works, with either adapter.
I need the external mic as I use the Gopro on my helmet when flying a microlight.
Currently, I'm out nearly £400 and still can't use this thing. Close to just asking for my money back..
If anyone has ANY knowledge, PLEASE HELP!
Thanks in advance.....

thank you If you did exactly what I shown, and you do not have it working, and I own a Rode video Micro, make sure 100% it is plugged in to the mic, they are hard to push in themic and rode plug. the Beats extension you seen me force it on. Correct I am sure if my video could not help you but in my photo that is what you got and you need to figure out why yours is not working
