So when I thought GoPro couldn't get any stupider, they outdid themselves

So for some reason, my camera decided to go back to January 1st, 2016. When I uploaded my 162 KM bike trip from my camera to my PC, it told me that the date was wrong but it updated it. Well, it fell to update the videos' timestamp so when I uploaded my videos to GroProPlus web site, the dates were, of course January 1st, 2016. Then I noticed there's an option in the GoProPlus web to set the date of the selected videos, cool!

 

The stupid thing here is, you can't changed more than one field at a time! When you change a second one, the other reverts to its original value! So I went from 2016 to 2020, then 1st to 26th (no videos on Jan 26 so there was no danger to mixed them with already present videos) then from January to June. Who the hell thought this was a good idea? Can't they get anything completely right?!?

 

Oh, and why are the videos all out of orders and why can't they show the timestamps in the tiles instead of just the lenght? Who the hell thought that the lenght of a video was better than its timestamp??? I mean seriously, what are they drinking at GoPro to makes such stupid decisions???

totally agree. UI is far from good. File dates get mixed and sorted it seems that randomly, even SAME files on iPhone and iPad are under different dates. Then it gets sorted out .... some day randomly

I'm using gopro 6 with latest fw and recently had to put SanDisk V30 micro SD card in it, for auto-upload to start working. 

Latest versions of IpadOS on iPad pro 1st gen and iOs on my iphone X.
