GoPro app

    I am able to wirelessly live stream my GoPro Hero4 Session to my cell phone using the GoPro app.  Unfortunately there is no option that will give me full screen viewing.  I do not want to record and play back.  I'd like to know if anyone has any idea on how I can accomplish this. 

     My hope is to eventually use my cell phone as a pass through to my 65" tv.  Doing so will allow me to watch full screen live viewing of the train's travel from the engineer's point of view. Any and all help is appreciated.

 

Thank you,

Johnny B

Re: GoPro app solved

I solved my problem.  I hope this is of some help to those looking to accomplish something similar to what I wanted to achieve. What I did was to:
1. I downloaded and started the GoPro app on my cell phone.
2. Paired the train mounted camera to my cell phone.
3. On my cell phone I went to 
   a Settings
   b.Connections -  then turned on Wi-Fi (this connected me to my home's Wi-Fi network).
4. On my TV I went to the Settinge/Source menu bar.
   a. Click on Source
   b Clicked on Connection Guide.
   c.Clicked on Mobile Device
   d. Clicked on Screen Sharing (Smart View) 
5. Then I went back to my cell phone's Setting
   a.Clicked on the Smart View option
   b. Turned Smart View option on
   c. My TV was listed and I clicked on that.
Once I did that I was able to view my cell phone's screen on my TV.  The image on the TV was centered but not full screen. However when I rotated my cell phone by 90 degrees the image wen to full screen on the TV and cell phone.
 The only drawback is items like the record button, camera setting, and other icons will not go away.  I thought it was a small price to pay to have live streaming on a HD 65".

Re: GoPro app

I should have mentioned that my cell phone is a Samsung model number SM-J337V and my TV is a Samsung 65" UHD TV Series IMU8500.
