Although I received no response from GoPro I was able to fix the issue. My unit shipped on November 5. GoPro released a firmware update on November 20 - HERO6 Black v01.60 | November 20, 2017. Although the release notes do not say anything about fixing external microphone detection, once I installed the firmware update the camera began to detect the external mic.

Where are you gong to verify if the external mic is recognized or not? Right now my issue is that as soon as I plug in an external mic audio simply cuts out. I'm using the GoPro adapter with a Rhode Micro and Aptura shotgun mic.

What I was informed of by experienced users were you should upgrade your GoPro device's firmware first before attempting to use an external microphone with the adapter, by then it should automatically detect the source.
