Connect the camera to the GoPro app. If you have previously connected, delete the camera from the app before starting (hold down on the picture until the option appears). It's also a good idea, but not required, to delete previous Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connections to the camera. Once done, Go into the camera Preferences>Connections>Connect New. Open the app and press the (+) Add camera icon. If it doesn't auto detect the camera, choose HERO7 Black. When the camera is connected to the app, you will be given an oportunity to change the name.

That's odd. Make sure you are on the latest update of the app.

Hmm, sorry. When the camera first shows up as connected there should be a prompt asking if you want to change the name or keep the camera default name. I'm not sure why you aren't getting this.

I solved the problem. I had 2 cameras (GoPro7 and GoPro4). I removed both of them and connected them again with the GoPro app. Then I could change the name of the camera. Thank you for your help.
