Can I setup the app later?

I just bought a new Hero8 Black and I my phone isn't compatible with the app.

If I skip the app setup process now, can I go back and setup it up when I eventually get a new phone?

Re: Can I setup the app later?

@tankosaurus, yes, you can. When you're ready to pair your HERO8 Black with the GoPro App on your mobile device, you can do so by going through the steps here: Pair Your Camera with the GoPro App

I also suggest that you install the firmware update for your camera through the Manual process (on a computer) since you're not able to connect it to the app at this time. Follow the Manual Update instructions specified in this article: https://community.gopro.com/t5/en/How-to-Update-GoPro-Cameras/ta-p/394229
