Re: Is the smart remote compatible with Hero 5

Hello all

I have the same issue between hero5 and remote.
The last release 1.55 doesnt fix it :-(

I think the gopro wifi turn off in order to save battery, but some time we would need this time could be set.

Thank

Re: Is the smart remote compatible with Hero 5

Just wanted to let you know that I tried everything to get my the button new remote to work with my hero pro black and nothing would pair it.  This was the only video that worked.  Thank you.
