MIsmatch Between Hero 3+ Housing and Hero3 Backdoors
on October 15, 2013
This is a great product, but be aware that GoPro does not yet have LCD touch bacpac backdoors that fit the Hero3+ housing. I purchased the Hero3+ Black camera and the LCD Touch BacPac here. The LCD screen works great on the Hero3+, but you can't CLOSE and FASTEN any of the backdoors that come with the LCD Touch Bacpac/screen. I called GoPro, and they said I have caught them in the middle of a product transition. They do not yet make backdoors to fit the Hero3+ housing. So they are sending me a free housing for the Hero 3 (without the plus). They say my Hero3+ camera and backpack will fit and work fine in the Hero 3 housing, and then the LCD bacpac's backdoors will close/fasten. In the meantime, my workaround is a couple of rubber bands to hold the Hero3+ camera and backpack in the housing in order to mount the camera on the many mounts (headstrap, dashboard mount, handlebar mount, etc) I have purchased. I just can't use it in the water untilI get my new, free housing.
