Are you able to tether with the Virb as the GoPro had intended? I've been researching alternatives, Virb and the Rincoh are at the top of the list right now... I loved my GoPro 4 and the old GoPro App that didn't require a login, I have one of those 24 hour batter packs and loved not having to worry about power. Sigh. I have bought a ton of GoPro gear and suggested the gear for years, but no more.
As an IT professional working in ecommerce for one of the worlds largest companies, survival means customer focus and service. Understand your customer, their needs and pain points, something gopro appears to have forgotten. This company is going nowhere, revenue comes from wowing your customers and winning new, not screwing the existing! Well done gopro, i've been a customer for less than a month and the experience was Sh*t!
