I'd like to use my Android tablet or phone with my GOPRO 4 Silver using the GOPRO App, but how am I supposed to connect the camera to the Android device?
The only USB cables I can find have the GOPRO USB style connector on one end and a full size USB connector on the other. Where do I find one that connects the GOPRO to the mini USB on my Android devices?
The guys at Bestbuy claim the USB cable provided by GOPRO in the box is proprietary and others won't work even if I found one with the correct ends.

So the question related to android so I was wondering what android tablet to use since there seems to be some issues about which one will run the app. Apple is not my first choice.

3.5 years later My suggestion, Open a new Topic, but I do not mind answering here:

I use a Apple phone, Air 2, and a Win Pc laptop, so for me to answer that is like apples to oranges. Gopro Likes Apple a hint more, all I am saying why things work better them others. I suggest to let the site know your exact Device then just a Android tablet? Like said I open a new topic, write down the exact model (exclude the seriel) the camera of choice, and what OS or build , if not the latest?
