10 pin mini USB pinout on GoPro

The 10 pin mini USB connector can be purchased at http://www.chargeconverter.com/store/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=160

or with a pre-soldered PCB at http://www.chargeconverter.com/store/usbpcb for easier soldering.

Here is how we number the pins in this document.

    so to confirm:
    100K ohm resistor between ID and GND = Video & Audio out?
    300K ohm resistor between ID and GND = Audio in?

    Questions:
    1. Does anyone know if it is possible to enable both audio in and video out at the same time?
    2. When enabled, what is the expected audio level input (line or microphone level)?
    3. If it is expecting microphone level, does the GoPro provide a bias voltage for the external mic?
    Thank in advance
    Cheers!

    Is it possible with your 10 pin connector with PCB board to create a wire with microphone in and power? I would like to use an external mic with my gopro and would like the added ability to charge at the same time.

    Thanks!

    I own a GoPro combo but it cuts off the LCD monitor when in use. I’d love to purchase a cable that allows for external power and 3.5mm mic jack for external audio. Is this something you can custom make? I’m hoping that since there video out pins would not be used, that the LCD monitor would continue to work.
    Thanks!

    I too need mic in with these connectors, what resistor is needed.

    ridex I need a cable that will work with Data i guess when gopro changed to the hd3 it moved some of the pin outs that was lable data i got one the works with the hd 2 but wont work with the hd 3 help me please

    I Ordered your ready made cable for the gopro 3 to immersion transmitter. My question is, do I have to take the battery out of the gopro since your wire is supplying power? Or do I use the battery in the gopro to power the unit? I think I would want to use the battery in the gopro to avoid pulling more power away from my FPV aircraft battery. Your help would be greatly appreciated.

      For Hero3 black, the battery must be installed as the external power is not enough to power the camera (but still useful to extend the runnning time). For silver and white you can select to either remove it or keep it installed.

      If you don’t want external power at all, you can just cut the power cable at both ends.

  7. David Voy says:

    Can you make a custom GoPro Hero3 USB to 3.5 Stereo Mic as well as allow power to be plugged in too?

  8. Hi, Do you do a cable to fit the Gopro 3, to give power on/ power off. composit video out, charging in
    We need to leave a gopro on time lapse for 72 hours, so want these control. to save battery life.

    • ridax says:

      With our USB connector with PCB you can easily make a video out cable combined with external power input to the camera. However, it does not support power on/off. Is that required, if it is externally powered? If you want, you could probably use the Power/Mode pin on the bus connector to power on/off in one button mode.

  9. Paul C says:

    Could you custom make some usb 10 pins to 3.5 jack for audio in? If so do you know if a resistor is needed to activate the gopro to accept the audio?
    Thanks

    • Tekno Catron says:

      Having the same question here. I have been running a couple of tests after soldering things and once running the ID trough a 100K ohm resistor, it only switches to audio and video out mode. also does it not accept any mic input after this. So what resistor value is needed to get the ID switch to Mic input on pin 6 and 7?

      • Emerica says:

        Any news on this? I need mic in with these connectors.

        • Tekno Catron says:

          After buying the cable a while ago and measuring the thing trough.

          The resistor needed to switch it to Mic Input Stereo is 300K ohm on the ID and Ground Pin.

          Cheers!

      • Serioga says:

        the same with my adapter, av-out working but mic output not!

    Do you have a composite cable with Video out and +5V in to charge the GoPro Hero3 while recording?
    Happy Holidays!
