The default password for the GoPro Wifi system is – goprohero, all lowercase no spaces.
[UPDATE: GoPro have released the Hero 7 Black Edition. You can find more about it here.]
Looking at the different cameras (I have silver and black editions) the “3” within Hero3 is coloured to match the cameras edition. That is the Black edition’s 3 is black and the Silver Editions 3 is silver etc. But what really makes the white, silver and black editions different to one another is what goes on inside.
2012 has been a great year for the Unsponsored Q&A series. Some of the worlds top boaters agreed to take part in the series during the course of 2012.
2013 promises to be just as strong with a number of Q&As ready to go. This includes Q&As with Jim Snyder and Rush Sturges amongst others.

Basic map and compass skills are often overlooked by paddlers but are essential if you’re hunting down the next stout or need to walk out from a river. Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) technology has changed many aspects of navigation. This doesn’t negate the need for a basic understanding of map/compass use. Batteries don’t last forever and you just know that if you’re in a tight spot your GPS is bound to breakdown! However that said if you need to pin point your position in bad weather (or otherwise) a GPS will do it damn quick.
Maps are essentially a 2D representation of a 3D world. Maps contain a huge range of information that can on first glance look very intimidating. But given some time and very little effort you can unlock that information and begin to use maps to your advantage.Continue reading
