Was curious if we are able to connect action camera to phone with out Wi-Fi?
Not every place when traveling has Wi-Fi, so if I wanted uploaded a picture or short video to my IG page how can I if I am not connected to WiFi? Any answers for this? I thought the blue tooth solves this problem?

Hi, thank you for bringing this query to us. The only way we can connect the DJI Osmo Action to a mobile device with a DJI Mimo app is through WiFi. Thank you for your understanding and support!

thats Lame, what happens if your out at the ocean? or on a trail or rock climing ?
we can not upload nothing to mimo app?
so why dont they add a bluetooth update to fix this problem? i was at a place today and i wanted to upload a video to mimo app, so i could upload to my IG and i was not able to cause of NO wi-fi service.
they should add a Bluetooth to transfers files from osmo to mimo app.
Problem solve.

1) Record the file
2) Connect DJI MIMo (iOS or Android phone in this case?) with Osmo using WIFI and download the file to your device using MiMo
3) Turn Osmo/WiFi off
4) Use cellular signal from phone/hotspot to upload the file to Insta/internet

"Not every place when traveling has Wi-Fi,"That's fine because you don't need anyone else's WiFi, you can use your cellular signal to upload to the internet (instead of someone's wifi).

You only use WiFi to transfer the file, before uploading.

Maybe I’m misunderstanding the problem, if so my apologies!

You don't need any router. You simply need WiFi on your mobile phone and on your Osmo to establish an ad-hoc connection between those.

You can, in fact that’s the only way to transfer a file: except that it’s a 2 step process, use Osmo WiFi to transfer the file to the phone. Then use cellular or a WiFi hotspot to upload.

But I see what your saying, you want to do both in one step and that’s not possible (and probably will never be).

Hi, I totally understand your point. However, we don't have that feature as of the moment, you can use your cellular data for you to upload a file to your social media platforms. Also, I will take this as a suggestion and will forward it to our designated department for attention. Thank you for your understanding and support.

Theres no need for a Hotspot. Simply turn on your WiFi on your phone and on your Osmo and establish a normal ad-hoc connection between those.
If it doesn't connect properly, change the WiFi Settings in the Osmo to 2.4 GHz only.

Also make sure, that your Android/iOS doesn't disconnect from WiFi, when there's no internet connection in the connected WiFi-Network. On Android you can disable something like "automatic network-change"

So can we connect osmo to phone with no internet connection?
cause i cant, i was in my car the other day trying to connect osmo to my phone, it would not le me.....
and this is the problem i am having, only lets me connect when i am Home cause of internet, cellphone is connected to the wifi internet, so when i am home i have no problem getting connecting osmo to my phone, But when i am away from home, i can not connect osmo to my phone, this is frustrating ...
