Re: Hero 5 not connecting to Samsung s9 app

Hi @jonnywhy26

 

Thank you for the information, I noticed that the SD card you are using is not a recommended card.

To isolate the issue further, would you be able to test this with a recommended card?

I have just tested a Samsung Note 9 (GoPro app on 5.1.1) and was able to trim videos without errors.

 

Also, we are releasing an update(GoPro app for Android) to address the crashing/connection issues.
Please continue check our website for information. 

Software Update Release Information

 

Regards,
