Hero5 black, crazy slow WIFI connection when download to iphone app

[ Edited ]

Something is wrong here, I think this is a bug.

 

Last time it was very fast

Maybe it is because of the firmware updates.

 

It is IMPOSSIBLE to download any video from hero5 to GoPro app!!!!

It also has 6 second lag when using iPhone to link to GoPro for review.

 

 

I've tried reset GoPro!

Mine was so painfully slow with video it was pointless, photos were a breeze though. As for the new feature of transferring on the fly well that useless at those speeds. 

 

The gopro hero 6 is supposed to be 3 times faster so there’s that.

Re: Hero5 black, crazy slow WIFI connection when download to iphone app

Hy. Problem with firmware. I use gopro3+ and gopro 5 and Gopro Sesion. The firsts firmwares are TOP, letters NO GO 😢.
Android no problem just Iphone and Gopro (no just my iphone and Gopro)
