How to find a lost camera.

[ Edited ]

I lost my Hero 5 Black camera skiing. I wanted to know if there was a way to track the camera or if it is gone forever. I have the serial number and the box of those are needed.

Re: How to find a lost camera.

Unfortunately, no. There is a find my camera function with the app, but the camera needs to be in Wi-Fi mode. Even if it was, unless you had the camera plugged in to a power supply, the battery would have died by now.

capture app called Locate my camera  only is within t he wifi range not a gps tracker. Imagine we had that like our iphone?   you may file it with giopro  support ,  ther may be a chance that some one will find it and report it in to gopro.  a good thing t odo is to have an email on  your sd card with a reward info. you can even tape info but the card is the ebst. hey look there is a this file with a reward if found.

 

we do that on our rc stuff

Re: How to find a lost camera.

No problem. I'm not much better when I use my mobile phone. The spelling is ok, just often times not the right word, LOL. I need to do a little proof reading.
