Ropey Smart Remote

[ New ]

I have been using GoPro 6 in aircraft but the mobile app connection is unreliable (using S8+ or in fact unreliable using ANY phone).  IT can get stuck trying to connect for a a minute or two before suggesting things like toggle wifi on and off on the camera - nice idea except its outside where its 140Kts.

 

So looking for a better solution to turn record on and off I have a smart remote from an older go pro, but I have found this too unreliable with its own gopro and I wanted to know if it can even work with the hero 6.  The smart remote has two buttons and claims firmware 2.2.1.  If I try to put it in pairing mode it flames out.

 

Looking for a solution.

Hi @megajump1238

 

If it only has two buttons, you have the Wi-Fi Remote.

This is compatible with the HERO6 Black.

You may also check Wi-Fi Remote Update Troubleshooting

 

Also, when using the camera in an aircraft, there are possible interferences that cause the connection to drop.

 

Thanks!
