TURNING OFF TOUCHSCREEN

Can we please have a firmware update so we can turn on/off touchscreen as desired like older gopro model ! Touchscreen drains the battery and I find that like most user i hardly ever use it anyway. Please update the firmware ASAP so we can turn it off

@jerem0703 - You can set the screensaver to power off the rear screen after 1 minute if you'd prefer to have the screen off.

Hi @jerem0703

 

Turning the LCD screen off is not an available option yet.

You may want to lower down the brightness to the minimum which is 10%.

Turning off the GPS, Wi-Fi and Voice Command are other options you may try.

 

I hope this helps.

 

Thanks!

OK, but if the six have this option, why can not the seven have it?

Re: TURNING OFF TOUCHSCREEN

Any software update coming soon to fix that issue where we cannot turn off the screen which drains the battery too quickly ??!!?!!?!?
