Remo discontinued

I've just heard that that the new Remo to go with the new Hero 5 is discontinued. Is that correct?

I dont know for sure... But since the REMO and the Smart Remote sell for same MSRP, I bet the Smart Remote outsells the REMO by 3 to 1 or better. 

Remo has no LCD screen, and the voice activation is very fickle.  Voice operation only works in quiet environments (not most gopro environments) and is very hit and miss.  GoPro often misinterprets normal speech for a GoPro command and shuts off on my Session 5 with built in voice activation. 

 

Personally, Im getting the smart remote!

Re: Remo discontinued

Every site I look at says remote only works with session and hero 4, even GoPro's own site says that.

Hmmmm guess your looking at a different gopro website than I am!

It states:  "Long-range remote control for your GoPro camera.
Compatibility: HERO5 Black, HERO5 Session, HERO4 Black, HERO4 Silver, HERO Session, HERO3+ (Settings/Tag button not compatible), HERO3 (Settings/Tag button not compatible), HERO+ LCD, HERO+"

You are mis-reading and/or misunderstanding.

It actually says: "The Settings/Tag button is compatible with HERO4 and Session cameras only" it also says on the left side: "HERO3+ (Settings/Tag button not compatible), HERO3 (Settings/Tag button not compatible)" 

Which means the "settings/tag" button on the smart remote will not work with the HERO 3 or 3+... the rest of the remote buttons and functions will!
