not asking, telling you....

how do I get my phone to scan the qr code on itself ? why can't I just enter the wifi pw instead? stop overthinking for me, you're not helping. how many phones do you expect me to take with me on a ride? (obviously more than a samsung s10e since you don't support them apparently as I've discovered trying to figure out how to connect it in the first place!) the fusion 360 adhock wifi isn't visable to my laptop either as it must be attempting to associate with an app. so I can't scan that screen... I'll enter the pw every time, but phones tend to remember wifi pw, so the qr code is totally stupid, as well as physically impossible without carrying more devices! what genuis came up with that one? please update firmware to stop doing that and prompt me to enter the pw that appears on the camera! 

The voice control seems neat, though I get no preview, and it only seems to work with burst capture no matter what mode I set on the camera... 

I knew there was a reason I kept all the packaging!

Re: not asking, telling you....

so I did a screencap, sent it to the laptop, now I can see the qr with the device I intend to use, or figure out -if I can get it to connect via wifi in the most convoluted way I would imagine- to scan this qr code now on my laptop screen... page comes up and has a "connect" selection... no werky. even my cheap elecam 360's function with phones! I got gopro because they just work... Well, so much for that belief.

Re: not asking, telling you....

Absolutely no idea what you are talking about.

Fusion Pairing Process

Pick up your camera.
Press the Mode button to power on your camera.
Press the Mode button repeatedly until the Settings icon (wrench) appears; press the Shutter button (front) to enter Settings.
Press the Shutter button three times to bring up the Connections settings.
Press the Mode button repeatedly, until "CONNECT" is highlighted, then press the Shutter button to select.
Press the Shutter button to select the highlighted "GOPRO APP," the camera's LED will begin to flash blue and the camera's name and password will be displayed.
Open the GoPro App:
Select the Camera logo at the bottom left corner of the app and it will automatically begin scanning for your camera
You should see "We Found Your GoPro" and a blue "Connect" button. Tap on connect.
You will see a section to change your camera's name, or you can tap on the bottom button to leave the name as it is.
Once a name is set your GoPro App will show a live preview of your camera. You're all set!
