Be wary if purchasing for Hero 3+ Black
on 25 October 2013
Bought this item for my newly acquired GoPro Hero3+ Black edition and was hugely annoyed to find out that the LCD touch waterproof backdoor is not compatible with the 3+ housing!!!
It does't actually state this on Go Pro's website or here on Amazon. In fact on Go Pro's official site it says that it is compatible with the Hero 3+ !!!! However, if you check their support pages you find a post that says that the Hero 3+ standard housing is not compatible with the LCD Touch back door and that you should use the Hero 3 standard housing so that the LCD Touch backdoor fits and securely closes.
Basically the Hero 3+ housing is too small in comparison to the back door of Lcd Touch Screen BacPac! Very annoying and 3 stars only therefore until this is resolved!
Also found that removing and fitting the back door to the standard housing is very stiff and worries me at times that I may break the connection.
Actual screen itself is 5 stars but housing issue sucks so much and compatibility issue drags down the rating!
