Re: problem connecting hero 5 to iphone

 

Hi @toughstar61382

 

Please go over the steps listed on this article.

In most cases, forgetting the Bluetooth ID/Wi-Fi name sorts out the issue.

If it's still the same, try resetting the camera's Wi-Fi information.

 

Let us know how it goes.

 

 

Thanks!

Hi thanks seams to do the trick but when left a while it’s hard to reconnect and after I switch off it don’t go back to my WiFi I have to go to settings and reconnect to my home WiFi

Hi @toughstar61382,

 

You can set your home Wi-Fi to connect automatically if you have it on your settings.

But the smart network switch should be turned off because it will find Wi-Fi with internet connection.
