Question... If I have 2 GoPro cameras... are maybe 3 or 4, is there a way
to monitor all of those shots on a single smart phone (iphone) ? I know
you can do it for one... Say you had 3 GoPro cameras on dash mounts inside
a car, for example, it would be nice to have a monitor so you can set your
shots and then lock them down. Thanks for anyone who can reply.

I have the same issue. I have the latest firmware on the camera and the
latest iPhone GoPro app... not sure what I am doing wrong.

Can you save the videos and pictures from the app to your camera roll ?

Author TommyH904 ( ago)
If you haven't got this to work, I was having the same problem. What you do
is on the main screen of app, click the wrench in upper right corner, click
preview player, change this from auto to software. Once I did this mine
started working.

Author Ben Zin ( ago)
Same problem here!

Author w3bguru ( ago)
Looks like you'll be able to connect to different IP addresses, so you
should be able to switch between cameras, as you would connect to different
computers on a network.

Hi! I have a gopro hero3, and i have downloaded the gopro app, but on my

Author Alain Rémi ( ago)
Go read the comments on Amazon: 50 one star for only 34 five ! I'm talking
about the GoPro Wi-Fi BacPac not the apps... nevertheless ???

Author eladbari ( ago)
wait a minute. so youre saying that the Live Feed to your phone isnt
working with GoPro3 Black yet? p.s- there is a 10 second delay? thats a
long time, wow! maybe if it was a bit less. or, lets say, not showing
30fps, but maybe it could be faster.. :\

Author DarkstarOhio (306 years ago)
It's not. I've been trying to get it set up on my Black Edition and it's
still not working.

Author Leon M ( ago)
so it works with the ipod toch too?

Author Silverline Productions ( ago)
You can't control more than 1 camera. So it is pointless. However the new
Goprop3 feature does allow you to control multiple cameras without the need
of switching between different wifi networks like the Gopro2. So again..
pretty damn pointless.

Author Jeff Zahnd ( ago)
I wonder if the hero 3 will be "instant"

Author Jeff Zahnd ( ago)
well the way it is now, to keep the camera small you only have a window to
try and get your view. The "back pack" is bulky. I agree that the hero pro3
will be worth the money since you won't have a backpack, and it's smaller a lot smaller when compared to the hero 2 with a backpac on it.

Author Jeff Zahnd ( ago)
you must not have understood the function. this allows for you to use your
iphone as a view finder, start and stop recording, change
settings...everything you could do with the camera but on the phone. you
can also use it to remotely start/stop multiple cameras with one click. I
think you can do like 60 cameras!

Author Silverline Productions ( ago)
A feature, excatly... Pretty expensive "feature" though wouldn't you say?
The Hero 3 comes out next week so I think I'll just wait for that. :)

Author Jeff Zahnd ( ago)
it allows your to have a preview screen on what you are shooting to help
you setup and see what you are actually shooting at. a very nice feature.

Author Silverline Productions ( ago)
So basically the wifi app is only good for pressing rec on demand.. You
can't save videos, pictures or use multiple cameras? Seems like a poorly
thought out peice of software.. Almost seems like apple are behind the app
thus forcing you to buy every single peice of software updates! GAY!

Author FloridaKiteboarding ( ago)
Not at this time.

I do not believe multiple-cam control is available within the iPhone App as
of yet. It is currently available using the Wi-Fi Remote.

Author NEJCNEO ( ago)
Yeah I just bought this today. IN LIVE MODE THERE IS 10 SECONDS DELAY!!!

Yes, up to 50 cams at the same time.
