When I'm recording with gopro fusion in a car the live view on my S8 S is freezing after some second

I take a lot of records with my fusion in my car on the way.The camera is mounted outside of the car.The live view is working but after some seconds the picture is freezing on the screen.The recorded captures are fine but i want to see what I'm taking.Need some ideas,help please.

Re: When I'm recording with gopro fusion in a car the live view on my S8 S is freezing after some se

Streaming a 360 degree FOV video to your phone is pretty intensive work on both the camera and your phone.  To help maintain the connection I would do the following:

 

First, make sure you are using the recommended SD cards in your camera

https://gopro.com/help/articles/block/microSD-Card-Considerations

 

Secondly, make sure you close any background apps on your phone that you are not using.  The more programs running in the background the more likely they are to cause your phone to lose connection with the camera.

 

Thirdly, make sure your phone and camera are close together.  The closer they are, the more reliable your feed will be.

 

And finally, check you local laws on operating electronic devices while driving.  In many countries it is illegal to feed live images to your phone while operating a motor vehicle.  This falls under the distracted driving laws and you could be fined for doing so.  Please do not drive distracted and practise safe driving.

Re: When I'm recording with gopro fusion in a car the live view on my S8 S is freezing after some se

I think the background apps will be the problem.I use in my fusion SanDisk 128Gb cards.When I sit in the car the camera is max 1-1,5m away from me outside of the car.Does it matter that if I connect with wifi to cam the bluetooht is not turned on?!Oh and sorry for the misunderstanding under recording I'm not driving the car.Thanks for the quick help!
