While at home I can only connect using wifi which means I have to turn my wifi off and rely on 3G

At home I have to turn my wifi over to my GoPro which means I can't connect with the world ...only through 3G ....why can't I connect via Bluetooth?....

i have to go to settings every time I want to use my GoPro and select it therefore disabling connection.....

strange it doesn't connect automatically after initial setup?//

Bluetooth does not have the bandwidth to be able to transfer video content like your GoPro uses. The wifi connection is needed to transfer that data.
