Hello @superjump11560

 

The camera will connect to your phone through Wi-Fi without requiring mobile data or Internet connection. The Wi-Fi connection is from the camera. Bluetooth is only used to pair the devices initially. Eventually, the camera can be controlled by the phone via Wi-Fi through the GoPro app. For pairing instructions, please visit this article

 

Thanks, 
Marius
