If you have a GoPro Hero 3 Black edition, the GoPro Android app works now. You need to apply both a firmware update for the camera and an update to the Android app.

Firmware update
On Windows, the firmware update can't be performed from the Google Chrome browser.

The camera firmware update asks you for a name and password because it adds an option to turn the camera into a wireless access point. The camera uses the name and password you enter here as the SSID and security key for its wireless network.

Disconnect the camera from the computer when the updater asks you to, and then turn the camera on. It takes a couple minutes for the camera to update its firmware.

After the update, change wireless mode in the camera to App.

Before using the app, turn on wireless on your phone and select the camera's wireless network. Launch the GoPro app after that and it will automatically connect. Touch the top button to see a live preview of your ugly mug.

Thanks for the info! I plan to upgrade to the Hero3 as soon as my shop stocks them, all for that reason.

Did u get one at SEMA? Cause go pro isn't even shipping them yet. At least all my vendors can't get them for another two weeks. If you bought one at SEMA then yes you could have already had one.

Works with all Hero 3s AFAIK.

Wireless eats the battery on these cameras FAST. It's ridiculous.

why is it worth to go from the GoPro1 to the 3? (if it is...)

Understeer is when you hit the wall with the front of the car. Oversteer is when you hit the wall with the rear of the car. Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall, torque is how far you take the wall with you. Rollover is when you wished there was a wall.

The lens is sharper.
The CCD has higher dynamic range so there is more detail in shadows and highlights.
There are more resolutions and frame rates to choose from.
The built-in microphone is better.
It can transmit video over wi-fi to your smartphone to take the guesswork out of positioning the camera.
It is smaller and weighs less.
