All-New Insta360 GPS Action Remote for Easier Camera Control

3 min read

Insta360 today announces an all-new, improved GPS Action Remote.

The new remote features the ability to overlay live GPS data onto Insta360 action cam footage, with unified data from three networks. It replaces the previous GPS Smart Remote, with some key upgrades.

Bluetooth 5.0 has been implemented into the remote, adding the ability to now remotely wake up Insta360 cameras from a powered-off state, and control multiple cameras simultaneously. Designed for rugged conditions, it is also IPX8 waterproof and comes with two mounting bands for use on handlebars or the wrist.

The ultimate accessory for adrenaline chasers, the remote helps make shooting amid high-intensity action a breeze. Mountain bikers, surfers, hang gliders, or even hitting the road — this is the accessory that you won’t want to leave behind.

The Insta360 GPS Action Remote is available now via the Insta360 store globally.

Insta360's all new gps action remote is out now.

Stronger connection, reliable coverage

Utilizing GLONASS, BD, and GPS networks in unison, the upgraded remote now has a stronger and more reliable connection. This means that even when deep in the mountains, or riding through a trail, your journey will be tracked with high accuracy.

The new Bluetooth 5.0 functionality also allows for expanded options when shooting. The upgrades to the remote mean it can now communicate with an Insta360 camera up to 65ft (20m) away. If you’re planning a still shot or need to shoot something carefully from a distance, this is the answer! Combined with the ability to remotely wake up an Insta360 camera from a powered-off state, and support for X3’s QuickCapture feature, there are plenty of possibilities here.

With the remote, there’s no need to record with your phone to get GPS stats data. Simply import your footage after shooting into the app, then overlay stats like speed, elevation, and more onto your video in a tap. These stats can add an extra punch to action footage and keep viewers engaged.

The gps action remote is compatible with insta360's latest camera, x3.

Mounting bands for more options

The new remote now comes with two mounting bands, giving you the flexibility to mount it either horizontally or vertically. Whether you’re hitting the road or trail by bike, the mounting solution allows you to easily attach the remote to your bike. If you’d prefer to have it on you at all times, the wrist mount option will have you ready to shoot anything.

The gps action remote can be mounted in a variety of ways.

Available now

The Insta360 GPS Action Remote is available now via our store globally and retails for $79.99. It currently is compatible with Insta360 X3 and ONE RS, with support for the ONE X2 coming soon.

    Can the overlay data be added via the Insta360 Studio application – or is it mobile devices only?

      Hi Ifti, we’ve recently updated that so the stats data is available in Studio too. Enjoy!

    How many cameras can it connect to and control simultaneously? I have two Insta360 One RS cameras. Would I be able to connect both cameras at the same time?

      Hey Riz, you can connect up to three cameras at the same time.

    I just purchased an Insta 360 Remote. Where can I download the manual in PDF format?

    The enclosed instructions are that small you need a microscope to read them!!!!

    Hello, just had it. Why we cannot choose HDR video or photo from the remote ?

    Reply
    1. Insta360 2023/01/09 at 12:24 pm

      Hi there, the GPS Remote can shoot in four modes: video, photo, timeshift, and loop recording. HDR video and photo cannot be applied with this accessory.

    Does this work with Titan Pro 2?

    Reply
    1. Insta360 2023/01/13 at 11:23 am

      Hi Rob, no the GPS Action Remote isn’t compatible with our professional cameras. For Pro 2 we’d recommend using Farsight: https://store.insta360.com/product/farsight
      With this you can get live preview and shoot remotely with a 300 meter range!

    Will like to trigger two Insta360 x3 with the new gps remote. Can it be done? I can’t connect two Insta360 x3

    Beautiful small remote, nice update.

    To bad it doesn’t have a microphone for sound recording, would be so handy, for instance, have your camera mounted outside the vehicle and record the sound inside the vehicle, on your bike and the remote/microphone covered from wind, or crisp sound of your voice. A all in one solution.

    Keep looking and it says not in stock! Is there a problem? I’ve put my name down to be notified, but ask what the hold up is (Jan 2023)

      Hi Mark, demand has been massive for the GPS Action Remote and we’re working hard to get it back in stock. Really appreciate your patience. Hopefully we’ll get it sorted for you soon!
