Reverse Camera/Mirror for Bicycle

I am trying to use my GoPro Hero Session as a reverse camera when I ride on the road. I am streaming the video onto my Iphone. Does anyone know how to flip the video in a reverse mode (eg Left becomes Right....not rotating it UP or Down)?

Your phones GPU will have to do this before sending it to the display.

So: you need some Software on your phone for doing this, GoPro Session can't!

After you are finished filming, head to your editor and use the Mirror  in studio I use that in  other editors . good luck

Dear Gopro,

 

Any update on adding this feature/enhancement in Caputre Preview with reverse/mirror? I notice this was asked quite some times as early as early last year in this forum, e.g.

Thank you.

I recently bought Hero 5, and try to use it almost exlusively for this purpose/usage of revers/mirroring of rear viewing, i.e. in bicycling as OP does,  putting it in the back of bigger/wider towed boat, travel trailer, so you can see what behind you to safely changing lanes and backing up. Without this revers/mirroring feature,  it's kind of pointless to keep it for me. It seems to me the feature can be easily added since it's similar to GoPro's existing features Auto/UP/DOWN for vertical flipping, and the new feature is just for horizontal fliping.
