LOST Camera - Options[ New ]
I lost my camera on 11/28 and I reported it as lost on 11/29. I was informed by Support that it was logged as such and I would be notified if someone reported it as found.
Then later in the day on 11/29, someone took some pics which were uploaded to my account.. (I attached the image that was uploaded automatically to my account yesterday.)
This gave me some hope of finding it... However, I have no way of making contact with the person. (The image uploaded to my account did not have GPS data so I wasn't able to get any coordinates.)
This is an area where GoPro can HELP in a huge way...
Ideas for improvement:
- When a camera is marked as lost, upon calling home to GoPro, the camera should display the phone number of the owner so that the person can make contact with the person. At least give them the option to make contact.
- Optionally allow the owner of the camera to lock the camera and put a contact message on the screen.
- The registered owner should have a little more control over the device if it's recovered.
Has anyone gone through this and gotten their camera back?

Time to contact your local news station!
Just phrase the story to say "You believe this person wanted to make contact with the camera owners and that's why they uploaded the photo on purpose". Now you need help finding them.
See if they'll broadcast the image and if the public can help re-unite the camera owner with this very helpful photo taker....
