Re: connection problems Hero 6 with app on Nokia 8 (android 8.1)

I have an android device which connects to hero6 and hero7 blacks. Here are steps I followed to ensure a clean connection, see if it helps.

Firstly on the camera.

Go into the camera menu and select 'reset connections'
Next select wifi band of 2.4ghz
Start a connection to the app (this is so you can see the ssid and the wifi password).

now on the phone.

Ensure Bluetooth is on
To ensure a clean start forget the current Bluetooth connection for the hero 6 camera.
Next pair the camera to the phone via bluetooth
Go into wifi settings and the camera and connect the phone to the camera wifi, note you will need to enter the ssid and password from the step above.

this should connect the camera to the phone via wifi and bluetooth.

If you have done the above then now on the camera select connections>gopro app

now start the app on the phone, select the menu option and the camera.

if all is good you should see the camera, with a blue wifi symbol next to it. Now select the camera and in a few seconds it should hopefully connect fully.

Try the above and let us know if it works.

Thank for your reply! Changing band to 2.4 Ghz immediately solved the problem!
