Smart Remote

Hello,

I have a GoPro 8 Hero and a Smart GoPro Remote.  I can connect the remote to the GoPro and it works fine within 30 feet but any distance further than 30 it disconnects.  According to the product specification the remote should work up to 600 feet away.  Is there a setting I need to update or is this remote just defective? Appreciate anything you can suggest to help.  

Thanks.

Re: Smart Remote

Actually the specifications say that it can work up to 600ft distance in "optimal conditions".  So that's line of sight, nothing inbetween, no wifi, radio or sunspot interference.
