Live Saving Feature Request: Mirror/Flip Video - Rear View Cameras For Cyclist

Greetings,

 

Thank you for your great work.

 

As a cyclist, I would like to use the GoPro Hero5 Session as a "digital rearview mirror" while streaming the live feed/preview to my iPhone via wifi. After purchasing the camera, I was suprised this feature wasn't already in place.

 

The purpose of this is to keep cyclist safe and save lives. 40% of cyclist fatalities are from being hit from behind, often times it's a hit and run.

 

Please make this a priority.

 

The controls can be placed in the settings area where there is ample room and could include at minimum "Horizontal Flip" and possibly "Vertical Flip".

 

Is there any way we can get this in the next update?
