Can I just connect my camera to my phone WITHOUT ANY location services?
GoPro Hero Session has just two buttons, why do I have to share my location to edit full list of settings?
Thank you!

Hi @gedagnors

 

Due to an Android 6 Marshmallow bug related to location permissions, location services must be enabled on your phone/device in order for the GoPro App to successfully scan for cameras.

Enabling any level of location services will enable WiFi scanning, so you can use ‘Battery Saving’ location mode to conserve battery life.

GoPro has a fix coming to better handle this issue and Google is making a bug fix related to this as well.
