Re: The app on my phone continually says "Searching for new GoPro footage"

I just turned it off. But isn't that something I would normally want on?

Re: The app on my phone continually says "Searching for new GoPro footage"

[ Edited ]

So offload and upload are confusing for most people (even me). 

 

Offload means getting media off your camera.  Auto offload is very aggressive and polls your camera over bluetooth constantly looking for new media on your camera to "offload" it to the app tab.

Auto offload should only be on if you want the app to always be searching for new media on your camera. 

 

Upload means uploading your media from the app/camera to the GoPro Plus cloud.  Mobile upload should always be ON if you want the app to always upload media in the GoPro app tab to the cloud. This means that we will tell you when you have new media and you can decide when you want the app to offload it to the app so it can be uploaded.

 

I hope this make sense.  If you have any questions please let me know!

 

Thanks,

Jason
