Hello @guidoz216

 

Since the live stream feature relies on the connectivity between the camera and the mobile device through the GoPro App, it is safe to consider the Wi-Fi range of 35-50 feet as the maximum distance. For more details on live streaming, you can read through this article on getting started with live streaming. 

 

Cheers, 
Marius

Hi

 

Is it possible to increase the Wi-Fi range? I was trying to livestream to Facebook (kiteflying with friends), but actually it took me several minutes to notice that when I move further than 30 feet, there's no possible way to proceed.

 

Thanks

David

Hello @brainsage

 

The Wi-Fi range indicated is ideal so there is no way to increase it further. It could be that there are sources of interference in the area where you were kite-flying. These could be surrounding trees, buildings, other electronic gadgets, and other source of Wi-Fi signal. To maximize the Wi-Fi range, it would be best to minimize the effect of such interference.

 

Best regards,
