If you're updating a WiFi BacPac or WiFi Remote, Cineform Studio will complete the entire process on its own.

I'm on the fence about returning the product as I purchased it for a reason and wil use it when the app comes out ... but when will that be?
Brian
I had no problems getting it to control the camera, off/on and record/stop recording but could never get it to preview the video.

Verified Purchase
I use my GoPro HD Hero 2 camera every time I go mountain biking, and the WiFi BacPac/Remote seemed like it was going to add convenience and fingertip controls, regardless of if the GoPro camera is mounted on top of my helmet, or on a chest harness worn by my brother or cousin (when it's their turn to film). I had been waiting for this since I bought my GoPro HD HERO2: Outdoor Edition (2011 Model), so when it was finally available on Amazon.com in June of 2012 I ordered one up. Upon receipt the WiFi BacPac, WiFi Remote, and my HD Hero 2 camera required a firmware update before I could use any of the WiFi components (see the bottom of the review for instructions.)

THE WIFI BACPAC
The WiFi BacPac attaches to the GoPro camera just like the other premium accessories (LCD BacPac, Battery PacPac). A USB charging cable is included (it's just a standard mini-USB cable) and like the other premium accessories, GoPro includes a couple of different backdoors in the box compatible with the WiFi BacPac. The only features on the WiFi BacPac are a single power/select button and a small LCD screen with indicators for battery capacity, bluetooth, and WiFi connectivity.

THE WIFI REMOTE CONTROL
The WiFi Remote is a nice looking unit, a little over 2"x1"x0.5" in size. It features a large LCD screen, two large control buttons, a removable velcro attachment strap, removable keychain attachment, and a special USB charging cable. The two control buttons are rubberized and heavy duty, and perform the same functions as the two buttons on the GoPro camera. I liked the size of the buttons - big enough to use even with full-finger gloves on.

WOW, what a cool feature!
But you will be disappointed If you've purchased this product because the features listed above, those are just what you would get if you paid for a finished product.
The features are not there and GoPro is not giving any information on when this feature will be released, for all we know it could be next year!

So I bought this gadget for the 3 features that aren't there.
The manual provided with BacPac is not well written.
Remote shutter control is the only function available, it is very convenient in some situations but not worth the price.

Also the product arrives completely inoperative, you must install updates on remote, backpack and cam to "fix it".
It is understandable that the Camera itself needs an update, but the firmware on bacpak and remote is not functional out he box!

My recommendation is to wait for updated firmware before buying this gadget.
I will be definitely returning this one back.

I own almost all their products and add-ons, including 3D rig and LCD packs. Have to say that I'm very disappointed with the GoPro product for the first time.

I received the wifi product today and now realize its fundamentally not the product they advertise.

If you need a remove control and feel its worth $99 for you to have that functionality they you may be happy with the product. The problem is that GoPro advertises and promotes this product as having wifi capability to stream and share the content and its simply not true, you can't do those functions with the product out of the box as of June 8 2012. There is no indication that GoPro will offer the app and wifi capability anytime soon. There is no release date or info from GoPro that the app will be available soon as in this week, this month or this year, I did some googling and I can't find anywhere where GoPro talks about when the app will be ready; they appear to be totally silent on the issue of when the app will be released. I think this means it could me months if not longer until the app is ready and passes through all of the app release tests from both iOS and Android app stores.

I'll be happy to change my review and rating once the app is released and works as advertised. Really disappointed in GoPro, they usually do a great job with their product but in this case its almost comical that they got all of us to pony up $99 before the product was actually finished and ready for public consumption.

Just take a look at all of the other ratings, even the ones with 4 or 5 stars says they are waiting for the real product to show up. You have to wonder if those ratings are true to the product in hand or are somewhat aspirational on their part as they -hope- the product will work for them at some point in the future.

I'm on the fence about returning the product as I purchased it for a reason and wil use it when the app comes out ...
