I have 3 Hero5 Session cameras.
I attempt to use the GoPro app to set them up.
The app connects to the cameras about 30% of the time. And that takes forever.
I've never seen such a horrible implementation.
What is an alternative so I can at least set the cameras up before shooting? I can't see myself taking forever to set up 3 little cameras with this turkey.

Hello, @jonav78. Have you been able to pair the Sessions to the app before? Are the cameras updated to the latest firmware? Do you get any error message when attempting to pair the camera (one at a time) to the GoPro App? Do you have the latest version of the app installed? Is your iPad running on the latest OS? These details will help us isolate the cause of the trouble.
If you haven't yet, try resetting the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connections between your camera and the app, reset the Wi-Fi on your GoPro, then re-pair the two. There are troubleshooting steps here for you to try. Let us know how it goes. Thanks!

The iPad is the device we have to use. So we need it to work.
Last night I turned all 3 cameras on and started the app. All 3 cameras showed up in the list of wireless devices almost immediately.
GorPro App comes up and says I have no cameras. Tried for an hour and gave up. Unable to connect to any of the cameras.
Let's solve this

I understand you need to pair the camera with the iPad.
We are just trying to isolate where the issue might be.
Were you able to test it with another device/phone?

It has paired with the iPad previously. Although, as I said in my earlier post, it takes too long and doesn't pair every time. Last night was the first time it refused to find any cameras. Thgouh they did show up in the wireless devices list.

Last night I tried it with my Samsung Galaxy and iPhone 8. Even worse. The Samsung found one camera and simply refused to find the others. The iPhone refused to find any. What a mess.
Packing it all up and selling it. Going to buy some other brand that actually works. This stuff is junk. Thank you for your replies.
