Gopro app only works via wifi, not bluetooth

I have to choose wifi to connect with the app in my iphone, but then I lose my wifi connection to the internet.  When I try to switch to bluetooth, my phone says they are connected to the hero6.  I then switch my phone back to my internet wifi, and the app says it lost the wifi connection.  Is the only way for the app to work is if the camera is the wifi hub?  Is there anyway to change settings so that bluetooth takes over?  Also, when I initially turn on the camera and try to connect, my phone stays with my internet wifi, and I have to manually select the camera's wifi.  Is this normal?  Just looking for a seamless experience.  I plan to use the camera alot in my shop and my phone defaults to my shop wifi as soon as I get there.  I was hoping the phone app worked thru bluetooth.
