Control GoPro from iPhone or iPad wireless

Touchpix allows you to use external cameras, such as a DSLR or a GoPro.

We will show you how to connect the GoPro camera to Touchpix in wireless mode. In case you are interested in connecting the GoPro in wired mode, check out this tutorial.
The GoPro 8 and newer can connect to Touchpix using our GoPro integration. However, it is advised to use the official ‘GoPro Quik’ app to connect the GoPro 7 and lower models. Here’s how:

GoPro 8 and newer
  1. Open the Touchpix app on your device.
  2. Visit the settings menu by tapping on the upper-left icon on the screen and selecting ‘Camera’.
  3. Select the ‘GoPro’ tab and press on ‘Connect to GoPro’. A menu will show up.
  4. Turn on the GoPro and tap refresh until your GoPro lists up.
  5. Tap on the GoPro followed by ‘Wireless’.
  6. If you have not paired your GoPro before, you’ll be asked if you wish to pair the GoPro. Tap on ‘Yes’. In case the automatic pairing does not work, activate the Quik app connection mode and try again.
  7. Exit the settings menu by tapping on ‘Go back’.

You’re ready to use your GoPro as an external camera!

Notes: If you’re using a GoPro 11, set it to ‘Pro’ mode (slide from top to bottom the GoPro screen, then from right to left and tap on ‘Easy’. Switch it to ‘Pro’.
If you are mirroring the screen before connecting the GoPro, turn it off. Trying to connect the GoPro while mirroring the screen returns an ‘Unable to connect to GoPro’ error.

GoPro 7 and lower
  1. Turn on your GoPro device and open the ‘GoPro Quik’ app from the official GoPro brand.
  2. Pair your device to the GoPro and connect to it.
  3. Open the Touchpix app on your device.
  4. Visit the settings menu by tapping on the upper-left icon on the screen and selecting ‘Camera’.
  5. Select the ‘GoPro’ tab and turn on the ‘Using a GoPro 7 or lower’ toggle.
  6. Exit the settings menu by tapping on ‘Go back’.

Please note: This feature does not utilize the Bluetooth connection to get the files. Please make sure your device’s Bluetooth is not connected to another GoPro. This might cause issues.
