## Usage hints
- Long press the map to add a new POI on the finger location.
- Long tap the location pin to move the marker.


## Notes:
- The GoPro Hero camera has to be connected with your iOS device over Wifi all the time.
- The iOS display has to be turned on all the time because else the iOS device disables the Wifi connection. If the iOS device is connected to an external power source (such as an external battery pack) then usually Wifi is not turned off by the system.


## Disclaimer
The GPS Control for GoPro Hero app uses background GPS location services to trigger location based events. Continuously running location services increases battery consumption.
