Re: Hero5 session broken display

when you go into  bluetooth and del  the serial of gopro1800  (example) and forget the device,  the wifi   you do not have to do.   When you  reset back up the passcode is on the Hero 5 Sessions screen  as climb1234 (example) that is not needed  to set up the camera  at all, because  the  camera will communicate to your phone and do it automatically.

 

Now on the other hand if you are wanting to use an additional phone or other device then you may need climb1234.   Because the  camera may  or may not do it automatically?

 

You can check the  sdxc  cards misc folder to see if the serial and password are on that?

 

   Why do you think you need the password  to load on????
