My Bluetooth issue seems not to be an issue
Thanks for reaching out to GoPro Support. I'd like to clear up any confusion regarding the use of Bluetooth with your HERO4 camera. We only support the use of Bluetooth for the initial pairing process with the GoPro App.
We utilize Bluetooth so that we can isolate the connection to the camera and help streamline the pairing process. As Bluetooth is not an efficient medium for data intensive / high bandwidth applications, we use Bluetooth to help connect the device then revert to Wi-Fi for streaming, camera control, etc.
Compared to Bluetooth, Wi-Fi allows for better security, higher bit-rates and better range when controlling the camera.
I hope this helps clear things up! Please let me know if you have any questions and I will gladly further assist you.
Found a video showing it pairing the camera via Bluetooth...I played around trying to make it happen on my GoPro HERO4 Black and could not. I see now that this is a GoPro issue
The cameras that were sold on Monday have a different firmware and the Bluetooth is not operational with that firmware
People who got a pre-release of the Camera have the firmware(1.8) that has working Bluetooth
The videohttps://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=p ... H1shsGzdLo
My Firmware is 1.4
These people have 1.8
And 1.8 is not on the GoPro site yet
