[ New ]
Hi, I would be very grateful if somebody can confirm if the old Wi-Fi Remote model: ARMTE-001 (with two buttons) is compatible with the new Hero 7 Black camera?

Hello @coolpike505

 

Yes, the old WI-Fi remote control works well with the new HERO7  Black camera. For pairing instructions, you can check the instructions below: 

 

Part 1 - Get your HERO7 Black camera ready for pairing mode
 

1. Power off your remote.  
2. Power ON the HERO7 Black camera.
3. On the back of LCD screen, swipe down from the top of screen and tap Preferences, then Connections.
4. Tap Connect Device and scroll down to Smart Remote.
5. Tap Smart Remote to enable pairing mode.
6. Now set your camera aside and pick up the remote.

 

Part 2 - Remote pairing steps

1. With the remote powered OFF, press and hold the red Shutter button on the remote.
2. While continuing to hold the red button, press the white Power button once briefly. The remote will power on and connect with the camera. You will see a confirmation message on the camera screen saying "Connected". 

 

I hope this helps. 

 

Best regards, 
Marius

Today, on chat which is available on gopro support page, someone told me that Hero seven black is compatible only with Smart remote. Could you please check this information one more time?

Hello @coolpike505

 

Apologies for the confusion. I have been able to pair the old Wi-Fi remote control with the HERO7 Black camera. It should work following the steps I provided on my previous reply. You can save this link (for the thread) for future reference. 

 

Best regards, 
Marius

The same issue to my new Gopro7. I used my old remote from my GoPro5 but I can’t pair to my Gopro7.

Hi @sienna2002,

 

Did you try to follow the steps posted above already?

 

Try to reset the camera connection and make sure that HERO7 is not paired with any device.

 

Please let us know if that will work. 

 

Regards,

-Jay

It does work you must press and hold the red shutter button then press the power button briefly at the same time and remain holding the red shutter button until the remote completely starts up

@wachu153, HERO7 Silver can only be paired with the GoPro App on your mobile device. You can find more information about the pairing process here.

The GoPro Remotes WILL NOT WORK with HERO7 Silver or White. Additionally, it WILL NOT WORK with HERO HD (2018).

The Wi-Fi Remote AND Smart Remote WILL WORK with HERO3/3+/4/Session/HERO5 Session/HERO5 Black/HERO6 Black/FUSION/HERO7 Black.

I have a Hero 5 and I previously had a Smart Remote synced up to my camera. I subsequently lost the remote overboard while fishing. When I purchased the ARMTE-001, I could not get it to sync with my camera. I tried all the comments I found on line and on GoPro's support hub. Finally, I decided to clear my settings for the remote and start from scratch. The remote synced up in about 10 seconds after doing this. I hope this saves some others some time if they are trying to hook up a second remote to their camera.

This will surely help others who may have the same set up.

Remote doesn't need a firmware update, just some of the older cameras did to be able to use the remote.

Did not understand what you have written! I didn't ask if the remote needed updating or not. I asked how to update! I can't connect the camera and the remote right now.

If there is no firmware update for the remote, how can updating it be explained?

Are you putting the remote into pairing mode? It's more difficult on the original remote than the new Smart Remote.

why would you throw me a link how to combine 4 and gopro remote firmware 2.1.7 ?????? I wrote that I have a gopro 7 black and firmware on the remote 2.1.2. Most likely it is impossible to combine them!! If you can not help, it is better not to write anything!

Are you able to put the remote into pairing mode? The camera doesn't matter. You should see a picture of a camera and two arrows pointing at each other.

You sure do love your punctuation!!!!!...?????? :)~

You are correct that the Remote is on the original firmware and does not have the seven years old June 4th 2012 firmware. The update requires GoPro Studio to be installed on your computer. If you do not have GoPro Studio, then you will not be able to update. GoPro Studio was discontinued and is no longer supported or distributed.
