The problem with time in gopro hero 6

Hello

My gopro hero 6 camera has a problem with the clock after setting the application clock shows correctly. After turning off the camera (the battery is inserted) The time is incorrect, saved from the last setting.
Example:
I set the clock in the application 01.01.2018 hours. 12:00, when the camera is on, the time is correct and the clock is on. After turning off the camera and switching it on after 3 days, the time is displayed: 01/01/2018 at 12:00 - it is corrected only after connecting to the application,

 

Regards

Greg

Re: The problem with time in gopro hero 6

Hello @marek2207 and @grzegorzg52722

 

Thank you for bringing this matter up. This happens when the battery is drained out. In order to keep the date from resetting, make sure that the camera will only be powered on with a charged battery. It should be alright even if the battery is removed and re-inserted into the camera as long as the battery is charged. 

 

Best regards, 
Marius
