    Then, we are going to select "NEW" and you will see two arrows coming together.
    We can select that and a tick will appear on both screens - both the screen of the remote and the camera saying that the devices have been paired. It is possible to connect various devices to as well. More GoPros to a remote so you can use multiple GoPros if you desire.

    Okay, so the remote LCD screen on the remote now mirrors that on the camera so anything you do on the camera, you can do on the remote okay?
    So, if we can see the remote - we can turn the remote on - and we can see what we can do okay? So using the remote allows us to create photos from different situations. We do not have to be near the camera. We can be far away or we can activate multiple cameras at the same time.

    So it is very important to turn on the wireless button which is on the side of the camera.
    Turn that on and you see the blue flashing now.

    Now, you can see that both menus are being activated solely by the remote.
    It gives you full control over the GoPro. It allows you to take photos, we can take some photos now perhaps by pressing the photo button. Take a couple of photos - you can see the red light flashing okay?
