HERO 7: Mic Adapter Icon (WE NEED THIS) - Firmware Update

Suggestion:

GoPro please in a future firmware update insert an mic icon to help us monitoring via gopro screen if the external mic is turned on or not.

 

The reason:

I am getting a lot of issues about this because sometimes the gopro mic adapter seems to doesn't work at all and the only way to check this up is going thru the properties in gopro's menu/input... 

 

Issue #1 - Mic Adapter doesn't work:

The Gopro Mic Adapter seems to bug something since the very last firmware update, sometimes GoPro doesnt recognize the adapter. And the only way I found to fix this issue is to taking off the batteries and putting back again. OR BEFORE plug the Mic Adapter connecting the data USB-C cable in USB-C plug, taking off and after this connecting normally the Mic Adapter. 

 

Thanks in advance!
