Re: WE CAN'T CONNECT YOUR FUSION !!!

Is the Bluetooth and Wi-Fi turned on in the phone?
Also, did you check to make sure the Wi-Fi is turned on in the Fusion?

If you continue to have issues, forget/delete your instances of Bluetooth and Wi-Fi from your phone. Go into the app>Cameras and press down on the picture of the Fusion and then delete it. Turn on Wi-Fi connections in the Fusion. Make sure both Bluetooth and Wi-Fi are turned on in the phone. Press the (+) add new and attempt to connect the Fusion again. Be sure the Fusion connection is not set to RC but rather to App.

Same as ME !   , I am told that only CERTAIN android phone will connect, My Galaxy Note 8 a recent on the market phone wont connect, GoPro support just say Bad luck.   Adroid support was advertised prior to christrmas as EARLY 2018....not yet . About time GoPro got their act together on this one.

Hi everyone. I would like to share with you all that the gopro fusion can be connected to most of the high end current and some old android devices. The only issuse that seeems to prevent it from being paired is probably the gopro app has some restricitons programed for the fusion camera to not connect simply on the basis that the device may not be able to handle the fusion media files.

 

However here is my video on how to get your fusion camera connected to your android device and use it to control it remotely and also access various features provided in the gopro app.

I use a Sony Xperia Z2 (2014 year) phone in this video which is running on android 6.0.1

This should definitely help you as it has worked with many users as of now that i have shared this video with.

Thank You.

Thanks  Rakish...Smiley Happy thats a good start to trying to control the camera at least.
My Note 8  N950F model connects  if you say its a Hero 6 ....

NOW If it can connect and do this, its only a small step to get a Preview sent to the screen.
My OTHER 360 Camera has NO TROUBLE at all displaying a 360 image with gyro viewing ( both Android and IOS Phones).

So What is so hard GOPRO ????    No money left for App development ?  Get serious please. More Android support Needed !!
