If you use the go pro how far can you control it with your phone?

Hello @fireybeach15213

 

Good question! The GoPro App's range is between 35-50 feet depending on the wireless interference in your area. You can read more on the Wi-Fi range here https://gopro.com/help/articles/question_answer/Wi-Fi-Range. 

 

Cheers, 

Marius

So my go pro will be on a boat and I want someone to watch from a shore does the camera have to be connected to WiFi in order to work?

Re: ?

Your camera does not have to be connected to wifi. Your camera actually creates its own wifi signal, which your phone can connect to so you can see the feed from the camera on your phone.
