Idea for Gopro cameras software: Make it possible to enter contact informations in the Gopro.

[ Edited ]

It would be very useful if we Gopro users were able to enter our contact information such as: Phone number, email, name, adresss in cases where we might have lost a Gopro and someone else have found it, turned it on and could see the contact informations.

You can. Make a text file and place it on the SD card.

If IF gopro left your wi-fi name to  write over  that is where you can do it on the Hero 4   so I am  sure that one person who found yourcamera will simply not bother with calling. but some will want to return  to writeful owners why we post up some where on the model  and like said on a file REWARD OPEN FAST/ email me at.

Putting a txt file on the card is not a good idea because of the following:

- The card must be working when the Gopro is lost
- If the Gopro is without card 
- Many people use the "format card" feature in the Gopro which will delete the file again.

I suggest that Gopro implement a contact form in the Gopro and also makes a copy of the contact form in a .txt file which is locked and can be deleted by the "format sd card" feature.

IMHO:

 

  could be put in the about this camera area. but how many people  know where to look when they find a lost camera?

Most people that finds a camera will take a look inside it to find any useful contact information unless they keep it for themselves instead.
I hope Gopro thinks about this little feature that cost nothing in performance or production time.
