a chart to follow to consume Power

[ New ]

Why does my camera drain when off, if you have te camera set up like so it won't drain when off, these are the settings some of us use, when we are finished we close up shop by turning off a few things like:


Connection, it will be a Constant on even when the camera is OFF.

Voice control/wake on voice, will be a constant on when the camera is OFF

Region/ GPS is not a Constant On its  OFF when the camera is off, and uses minimal power  when on.


If GoPro like Apple can create a log of when yourcamera is running of each feature used  that time you then can say GPS uses 2% power while I had it on, the  touch-display 20%, no one knows hte true answer, end.


Below if you follow this you be good to go.
