Re: how do I connect my hero 2014 to the phone app

Sorry, @jasonrzr1000. I misread your post. The HERO 2014 does not have wifi capabilities, so it can not connect to the app. The HERO+ was the model that had wifi.

Why isn't there an option to connect the Hero 2014 and Android of USB OTG?  Seriously?

Re: how do I connect my hero 2014 to the phone app

Mostly because the Hero (2014) was/is a very basic GoPro and at the time of it's release, GoPro didn't have mobile editing software so 99.9% of all editing was being done on people's computers. For those people who wanted to transfer media to their mobile devices, then the Hero+ was available as well as the Hero4. As far as OTG, there was only a handful of phones (I cant remember exactly which, but I think it was just on Samsung) that supported it when the Hero (2014) was released.

Re: how do I connect my hero 2014 to the phone app

I have a Samsung S9+ and a Hero 2014.  What you are telling me is I can't connect the two, and there aren't plans to allow for such.

Re: how do I connect my hero 2014 to the phone app

No, the Hero (2014) was designed as a stand alone camera. The Hero+ (2014), Hero+LCD, and Hero4 cameras were designed to connect to mobile apps.

All other GoPro cameras have the ability to connect to the app (Hero2 and original Hero HD 2011 require a wifi backpac).
