So Frustrated

Can someone help me?  I am new with my GoPro Hero 5 Session.  I cannot figure out how to use it with the GoPro app.  What steps do I go through to make the camera work with the app?  I want to video while driving on a scenic highway.  

 

I need step by step instructions because I must be an idiot.  Any help will sure be appreciated.

Re: So Frustrated

@stephanl63600 - I shot a video that goes through the pairing process. It may help...

 

If you have any issues after following the steps here, please let us know where in the process you got an error and what the error was.

 

Thanks,
Jeff

Re: So Frustrated

I thought I could charge the GoPro with a long cable AND record video at the same time.  Am I wrong?
