Frequently Asked Questions
It looks just like my iPhone charger cable. Can I just use the one I have?
No! The iPhone/iPod cable has a very similar connector to the GoPro Port connector, but the connections are different. You will almost certainly damage the camera if you try to charge the camera with an iPhone cable.
iPhone connectors are actually a slightly different size from the GoPro connectors. Some knockoff connectors will fit the camera, but they may distort the GoPro’s HERO Port if forced.
Will the connectors fit inside the GoPro waterproof back doors?
Low profile design fits easily in any of the extended skeleton backdoors provided with the GoPro LCD Bacpac or the GoPro Battery Bacpac. accessories. The connector is narrow enough to fit inside the back door and the cable fits easily through the slot at the bottom. Alternatively, a hole can be cut in the back of the standard skeleton backdoor.
Where can I find documentation on the GoPro HERO Port interface?
The GoPro User Forum is the best place to find unofficial documentation discovered by users who were not afraid to take their cameras apart and poke around.
