Re: Hero 8 paring issue

Hi @bryceb74840,

 

Are you using an iPhone or Android?

 

If you're using an iPhone make sure your iPhone is updated. 

Try to reset your iPhone's Networks Settings. 

Tap Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings.

After that go to Bluetooth settings and remove any GoPro Device. 

 

Pair your camera again. 

 

If issue persist please let us know.

May I know if you already updated the app and checked your current android version. 

When was the last time that you can pair it?

Re: Hero 8 paring issue

app wont upate past 5.2.2 which is super lame since newer versions are apparently not compatable even though the operating system is only a year old. last time i pared my hero 6 was about half an hour ago lol

Looks like a compatibility problem since the new app requires Android 7.0 or newer.
