Question
Is a Wi-Fi network needed to use the Remote or the GoPro App?

Where does it apply?
  • Cameras with Wi-Fi capability
  • Wi-Fi BacPac
  • Remote
  • GoPro App

Answer

You do not need a Wi-Fi network set up to use the GoPro App and remote.  The GoPro Wi-Fi creates an ad hoc network that they communicate over.
