Wi-Fi Remote and backlight

Hi!

 

How can I turn on the backlight on the Wi-Fi Remote?

The display is hard to read without backlight and I have seen a red backlight at some point but can not figure out how to turn it on!

Hi @espeno183,

 

Unfortunately the WiFi Remote does not have a backlight. If you are looking to be able to see you cameras settings in low light conditions it is probably best to use the GoPro App! 

 

Cheers,

Ryan

OK! Thanks for the reply. Although I am pretty sure the backlight is there even if it's not possible to activate it. My display had a red backlight for 3-4 secunds when I started it. And this was NOT from the red diode in the corner. I guess it has been deactivated to save battery. This happend when I started it after no been used for almost 1 year.

And GoPro app can not be used by most of us. We use this while skiing, cycling or driving MC!
