I have bought an hero 6 black camera in order to make movies inside my car with GPS data.
I have made some test
I use 1080 50 fps (pal .. im am french)
If I start from my garage GPS indicater will remain grey all the time and no Gps data recorded
if I wait a little bit outside, the indicater becomes white and gps data are included
But I have question about accuracy !
(On the same film I have used the Android apps GoPro and on my PC Quik software)
During my 15 minutes trip I was waiting 5 seconds at a STOP signal
And on the film the speed at this moment was ... 52 km/h (instead of 0 !!!)
Does anyone have advice for me ?

Download the app UAV Forecast on your phone. Go into settings and turn off GLONASS and Galileo. The app will tell you "Good to Fly" or "Not Good to fly". This app is used for drones, but you can use the data to determine the likelihood of you getting good accurate GPS readings.

While the GPS will work better outside, you can still use it inside your car. If you use the app I suggested it will tell you the information you wont be able to see, such as satellite count, estimated satellite lock (9 or more is best), and the very important kp index (kp is the amount of solar interference. You want less than 4 ideally). Things you can ignore are temperature and wind speed. I forgot to mention these earlier, but for your purpose, go into settings and change them to allow for extreme conditions (unless, of course, you are using the app for drone flying as well).

The kp indice is surprising !
GPS can be wrong !!!!!!!
I have seen it once in a James Bond movie
Anyway I have the free version and I do not see how to turn off Galileo and GlOnass .. but I am keeping on
