Can the LapTimer app handle 2 GoPro cameras to control? I know the GoPro/Quik camera can control more than 1. At the moment I have a Hero3 BE and will be purchasing a Hero5 BE to add to my inventory and would like to know if controlling more than 2 GoPro's is possible.

Not currently. You can remote control one but need to operate the second manually. GoPro just provided the option to connect to more than 1 cam, I cannot say yet when this feature will get available for LapTimer.

Thanks for the reply Harry.

I'm assuming you have latest GoPro's SDK as I see on the GoPro's website that using the Camera Toolkits for iOS/Android(https://developer.gopro.com/info) will control multiple cameras via Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE). Hopefully you have time to add this feature soon.

Yes, I'm aware but not using it currently. GoPro focusses a lot on the latest line and on premium models only. LapTimer's current implementation supports HERO 3/3+/4 and the lower cost options (HD, LCD, etc) on top of the HERO 5 line. Integrating the API is on my list nevertheless - as an alternative.
