One of the features I loved about my old ReplayXD is that it was hardwired to the car and would auto turn on/off based on the car's ignition switch.  Finally GoPro has added support for this!  I can't express how happy I am!  No more getting strapped in and hey, man can you turn my camera on?  There's also an auto live stream feature.

  1. Download & Install GoPro Labs firmware based on your GoPro version
  2. Manual update like so.  https://gopro.com/en/us/support/hero8-black-product-update
  3. Scan a QRCode with the camera. https://community.gopro.com/t5/en/GoPro-Labs-QR-Controls-For-Settings/ta-p/603196#qr_codes_the_basics

Damn, wish I would have seen this sooner.  With this setup I could just turn the camera on and off with a dash switch, so I could mount it anywhere and not just my helmet.

This is a great feature to finally have on gopro.  I've been using a Mobius Action Cam specifically for this feature, but it's become a bit unreliable over the last year.
