I just received a new GoPRo Hero 7 and am learning to use it. QUESTION:  When I'm transferring videos from the camera to my iphone using the wireless feature, does it use data from my Verizon data plan? ALSO, it says it's using a Wi-Fi connection (versus Bluetooth) so will this wireless transfer use my phones cellular data when  I'm not connected to my home wi-fi network?   Thank you in advance for helping me.

Re: GoPro App

Hi @bravepike03805,

 

Nope it is not consuming data at all. 

 

It only uses Wi-Fi and Bluetooth to connect and pair directly to your camera. 

 

Your home network isn't being used or your mobile data won't be used. 

 

 

Regards,

-Jay

Re: GoPro App

Awesome Jay. Thanks for prompt answer. I'm going to be hiking the Inca Trail with my GoPro clipped to my backpack and with not much (read "any")  acces to wi-fi or cellular signal so that;s good to know I can view some footage in camp each night. Thanks again. Mark
