GoPro App Latency iOS

Used my GoPro Hero 5 Black for the first today at a volleyball game today and I experienced some connectivity issues which I chalked up to the first time connecting.

I have my GoPro attached to a lighting tripod stand to get a good view when bleachers are not available, so I need to use the app to turn on and off remotely. I experienced some latency issues on my phone where the GoPro gets “stuck” and does not smoothly record and stop recording when I press the red button.

Can someone shed some light on this?

Thanks,

Re: GoPro App Latency iOS

@opena6 - There can be some momentary lag between the app and the camera. Shouldn't be more than a second or so.
