Gopro wifi not connecting to Iphone

Postby Hero4Hire » Tue Dec 25, 2012 9:24 am

I have everything updated. my problem is that the Iphone doesn't pick up on the gopro's wifi signal in the settings -> wifi menu. I turn on the wifi on the gopro and switch it to the "gopro app" and then go into my Iphone's wifi menu and nothing pops up. the weird thing is the remote's wifi picks up right away when I try to connect the remote to the gopro. the gopro wifi pops up maybe 10% of the time when I try to connect my Iphone to the gopro.

any suggestions? I would like to set up my gopro with the shot I want, but the Iphone is not picking up the Gopro's wifi signal at all.

Try moving away from any source of 2.4Ghz, wireless routers or access points

There's supposedly a bug that affects certain iPhones from seeing the camera in wifi settings. Some claim that setting the phone into airplane mode fixes the problem

As of yet I haven't encountered any connectivity issues between my HD black and my iPhone 4s/LG Revolution.

airplane mode doesn't work.

moving away from routers or access points doesn't work either. I think it has something to do with the software updates. I believe with time, gopro will solve this matter. I hope.

They better fix this issue or will have to refund lots of people. I use this camera as my main video camera, up to yesterday connection was fine, but no more. I bet they will blame it on Apple as there was an update on the phone few days ago.
