I've been waiting for this to drop since I heard about it back in January 2012! I've been seeing a lot of possibilities while waiting. I could set the GoPro up in a tree and lap a certain drop or jib while snowboarding. I can finally use the 10 photo burst mode! I can have the Gopro mounted on the front of the Raft, Kayak, or on my Kite (anywhere I can't reach it) and start, stop, or change settings with the remote!
It was kind of a pain in the butt to set up though. You have to upgrade your firmware on the GoPro, then register the Wi-Fi BacPac and update the firmware, then update the Remote. The only problem I really had trouble with was updating the remote. I ended up restarting my iMac and it finally worked. I'm definitely buying another one for my other HERO2 Camera! Just an FYI, The GoPro app is not out yet as of this review, so just be patient, but you can still use the remote to control your GoPro.
