Cant get external mic to work on gopro hero 5

Hey everyone

 

I just got the gopro adapter for connecting an external mic to the camera, but when i connect the Rode smartlav+ i dosent record any audio. I tested the mic on my phone and it works fine on that. My question is, do i have to setup something on the camera for getting the microphone working?

There are mic settings on the HERO5 Black that you can set once the mic is connected. It's in the Settings section.
