As someone who has the Osmo Pocket expansion kit, and has ordered the DJI mic adapter, I have considered times when I might want to use the WiFi to access the phone, while at the same time needing a better mic than the one on the OP. The DJI WiFi adapter has a slot to allow connection after the OP is hooked up.

So the question is: Do you think that slot will work with the new mic adapter, allowing both WiFi and use of a mic? Or is it just a "one way" connection allowing only for power banks?

Hi, thanks for the inquiry. I would like to clarify that you've wanted to connect the 3.5mm microphone adapter to the wireless module whilst it's connected to the Osmo Pocket? We will check this scenario into our designated department if this will be possible. Thank you for continued support.

I really think that is what the author meant.

Having a audio adapter without the ability to charge the osmo pocket is bad enough already, and I really hope that using a wifi module with an audio jack is possible, no matter how ridiculous the setup is.

Hi, thanks for the notification. Since the 3.5mm adapter is connected to the Osmo Pocket USB port then I'm afraid that we don't have an option to charge the Osmo Pocket. However, this process has been forwarded to our designated department for us to check if this would be possible. Thank you for understanding.

I believe he is asking a question I also have (and will be resolving, if I ever receive my microphone adaptor ordered last week, with no shipping details): will the microphone adaptor work whilst plugged into the USB-C port on the wireless adaptor?

If it would, then this would be a HUGE benefit to anyone shooting a remote. Imagine setting up your OP, stepping 15-20 feet away, to give a tour, or something. With the wireless adaptor, you could control the video you're capturing on the OP, and even have it track you as you move about. If the 3.5mm microphone adaptor functions plugged into the USB-C port on the wireless adaptor, you could then employ a wireless mic, and capture solid audio.

If this works, it means being able to function as though you had a camera person on scene with you, without having to use a separate sound recorder. HUGE!

Yes, that is what I am asking. I would like to use the WiFi module at the same time as plugging the DJI mic adapter into the plug on the side of the module. Will the mic adapter work that way, too?

Ted, I'm guessing no. As I understand it, the USB-C on the back of the wireless adaptor is power only, not data, so if so, this likely precludes the operation of the 3.5mm mic adaptor. I hope I'm wrong, though.

Yes, I hope you are as well. But I personally don't think it's likely that you are. We shall when the adaptor arrives for us.

Hi, thanks for that clarification. I've verified this situation in our designated department. Unfortunately, we couldn't use the 3.5mm adapter while using the wireless module that is connected to the Osmo Pocket. However, we will consider this as a suggestion and forward it to our engineers to see what we can do to make this process possible in the future. We do appreciate your understanding.

I totally concur with you ------ I have the full expansion set and tried transferring data from OP to PC in 2 different ways, wired with & wired without wireless module ------ wired with wireless module on, no transfer of data is possible.

I also have the need of remote recording solution (for sound). My OP is almost always connected to wireless module but almost never connected to phone using the USB-C connector. Sound recording is a headache in selfie shooting remotely when OP is over 10 feet away from me.

It would be nice to be able to use a splitter on USB-C to either charge the OP AND use an external microphone

The question is, whether it is possible to do that..

Also, I haven't seen any USB-C splitter on the market yet?
USB-C adapter to many peripherals (USB-A, HDMI, etc), I've seen a lot of them. But USB-C to two or more USB-C, haven't seen it yet? Especially for data.

Be patient - I am sure (working) adapters will come like Jan 1 after Dec 31!

While your design department didn't have a positive experience using the mic adapter with the WiFi module, two people that I know have successfully used the WiFi module with the mic adapter. In both cases they were using lesser expensive powered mics, not the more expensive mics. I am on the road right now, but I also have a less expensive powered mic and when I return home will try to use the two together and see what happens.

I have a possible solution but will be a mess of adapter and cables. I'm waiting for everything to arrive, take a look at this thread.

I’m curious to know how they made it to work.   No luck with me.

I look forward for your setup.  Keep us posted.   DJI should be able to make this work or revise the WiFi adapter with data capable and replace the one we bought or at a discount.  A terrible flaw.

Hi, thanks for your additional information. Since this hasn't been recommended by our engineers, therefore, we couldn't guarantee the outcome of this process. However, you could give us the feedback once you run the test and I will coordinate the result into our team. Kindly keep us posted on the latest progress. Thank you for understanding.

I would like to also ask for this feature (if it is possible).  My concern is that the Osmo Pocket has two built in microphones, one of which is for noise cancellation.  When the WiFi module is connected, it covers this microphone up, and makes the already marginal audio even worse.  Being able to connect a quality microphone would be the only remedy to this.  Please add the ability to connect the microphone adapter to the Osmo Pocket through the WiFi adapter.

With modification of Wifi module, mic adapter can be connected. But sound is not Stereo.

Until now... it will not work. You will have found out for sure. It is a big pity though, so I hope any future update will fix this... Also the deicated DJI Mic Adaptor for the Osmo Pocket will NOT work with the DJI Osmo Action Cam... an even BIGGER pity... Take Care! (Canon)Max

So...there is no way to use the extension rod and a microphone adapter? That is a really big oversight. At least not if you want to use the phone as a screen (like the extension rod is designed to do). If I put the wireless adapter on, I cannot use the microphone adapter. If I leave the wireless adapter off I have to connect with a cable...still no way to use the microphone adapter.

This is disappointing. The only way to use the DJI microphone adapter is with a third party extension rod, so you can connect via the lightning adapter and leave the bottom USB-C adapter open for the mic.

It's absolutely incredible that you figured this out and that DJI did not include this feature. This is an absolutel no-brainer that DJI should have shipped this item with audio enabled.

I use the WiFi module so I don't have to connect my phone directly, as the Osmo Pocket will charge it. That's the main reason I ordered it (the charging issue hasn't been solved and it's been a nuisance ever since the beginning. So I thought, OK the WiFi module will solve this, yeah it did, but created a new issue, unusable audio. OK I thought I'll buy that overpriced adapter and use an external mic. Well no, because that doesn't work either. DJI has made it impossible to use the product in its own ecosystem. These issues are nowhere to be found when you spend a bunch of money on accessories. Even more frustrating is that you spend all that money because you wanna have a fully working product, that DJI wasn't able to make in the first place.

DJI fix the audio adapter issue and the charging issue as well! this is the least you can do...
