Unable To Pair Remote To Hero9

[ New ]

The Remote does not show up as a pairing option in the Connections menu.  No issues pairing GoPro to my phone.  Firmware issue?

 

Thanks, Tom

Hi @larsontom

 

Check out https://gopro.com/en/us/news/hero9-black-launch-updates 

To control the camera remotely, you may pair it with the GoPro App.

 

Thanks!

Thanks for the reply.  I'm using the GoPro on a chest mount while cycling and using a phone as a remote isn't practical in this application.  The GoPro Remote is wrist or handlebar mountable and gives you full start/stop and mode control as well as a camera status display.  It's perfect for this application.

 

My issue is that the Remote does not show up as a pairing option in the Connections screen on my Hero9.  The user manual says it should be there.  That's why I mentioned that it could be a firmware issue on the Hero9.  Anyone else having this issue?

 

Thanks.
