OT: GoPro WiFi BacPac & WiFi Remote

For the benefit of GoPro users who have been chasing the WiFi BacPac and WiFi Remote. As you may know GoPro USA won't ship them to Australia pending "certification" whatever that means...I have just bought 3 of them from a site here in Australia. Ordered Monday, received today!

Set one up today after having to do a firmware upgrade. VERY handy - just set the camera up and turn it on and off when you want - theoretically from up to 180m away!

As we're not supposed to advertise here. PM me if you want to know where I got them from.

Your not allowed to advertise your own products/services. But you can and should share with others where you have received a good deal/service. So unless it's you selling them (pm's are monitored by the way) spill buddy spill.

No worries then I've had very good service from cheapchips.com.au - they sell pretty much the whole GoPro range. Stock arrives pretty much two days later by Express Post or Aust Air Express.

stupid certification crap.

We have a shop which sells accessories like go pro etc. Through the aus wholesaler we had to sign a contract saying we couldn't "advertise" it for less than X% below RRP (somewhere around 399). No-one buys them because they can get them for $300 and under off the net and the stupid thing is they cost a lot less than that from the wholesaler!

I find it very strange, you think the local wholesaler would want you to move as many as possible as he will be the one making the coin too. They are always advertised as 399 but they can be bargained down.. a lot
