Re: Why does the smart remote suck so bad? It never controls all my cameras reliably!

Please let me know if it works, I need some satisfaction after all the crap I’ve had to go through as well

Re: Why does the smart remote suck so bad? It never controls all my cameras reliably!

So far so good.  I did excatly as you said and both the GP7Blk and the Session 5 (which was solid anwyway) are staying connected.  I just reset the connection before every ride and they hold for a full day except of course if the GP7's battery gets to 100% then it just disconnects.  So i just ensure to start the day with a 50% battery, connected via powersource using the mic adapter.

 

thanks YOU.

i run mine without the internal battery.  This keeps the camera cooler and with the exernal battery only I get so many hours of use that I haven't run out of battery yet.
