When I first got my Hero 3+ I downloaded the app and connected to the camera. It worked well but wasn't practical to try to control the camera while riding a motorcycle. I got a smart remote but couldn't get it to connect to the camera. Looking online I got a recommendation to reset the camera; after I did the remote connected but the app won't see the GoPro WiFi network.

It looks like it is an either/or deal between the smart remote and the app, is that the case? I would like to be able to control the camera using the remote while riding, then connect using the app to share pictures at the end of the day. If I can't connect both the remote and app at the same time, is there a way to unpair the remote and camera to get the app to connect without completely resetting the camera?
