Re: No settings menu on the front LCD

You have to login every single time?

 

With the newest update, it does say that that you can forgo the login in case you aren't connected to the internet. Certain features won't work, such as GoPro Plus and the Photo of the Day stuff, but the basic camera control should be accessible. 

 

Formatting the SD is very annoying, I know.
