I tried the GoPro Hero5 on my bike…. Here’s what happened:
Charged it for 3 hrs, upgraded the firmware, unplugged it and went shopping for 3 hrs. Came back home, and the GoPro (without filming) was back down to 1%.
I’m going to Iceland soon and I cannot have this happen.
The only way to solve this is turning off the communications in the cam, or removing the battery. I just cannot justify spending near $600 on stuff… for that to happen.
Then when you factor in how they push you to buy a monthly subscription for the editing software and cloud features… It just makes you really turned off.
Great company, but I just cannot justify this type of design and execution. Maybe version 6 will work better for me.
