telephoto or zoom for Gopro 3+

I'm still searching for an inexpensive way to turn the FOV into telephoto (zooming preferred, but I'll settle for something fixed.) I have tried those add on lenses that advertise they are 2X. Believe me, they do so little that you can do it digitally just as well and they vignette to boot! So that's not the solution.
Please don't recommend the expensive mods. Not interested.
Is there a simple front of the lens add on that will give a more normal or better yet reasonable telephoto FOV?
I would hate to have to drag along both my Gopro and another videocam for general vacation shots when tooling around Europe.
Thanks for any help you can give here!

If you ever go the route for a lens removal use the tools out there makes a better job getting them out easily. Not sure I go that route , especially when all you need to do is pop on a zoomed lens attachment

and you can use this

Fish, is that a front end add-on adapter and a zoom that fits? I can't read the Russian translation (assuming it's Russian) and Google's translation isn't all the accurate. Did I read that correctly as 303 rubles, translating into about $5? Please give me more info. Thanks.

That's a bit better.
Now as to the silver mount you pictured, what is that? What site did you find that on?
And have you seen something that suggests this migh work in front of the standard Gopro lens, Fish?
Thanks.
