GPS connection doesn't work on Hero6 Black

Hi,

wherever I use my cam, the GPS connection is not working and the icon is always greyed out.

I tried to reset the cam, the firmware is the most updated.

 

Please help me to fix the issue.
Regards,
Alessandro

Hi @yassassin

 

I understand that you have tried troubleshooting the issue.

 

Please do test this out as this has worked on my camera:

First, update the camera manually. Once completed, do the factory reset.

 

Also, make sure that you are using a recommended card.

When trying to get GPS please avoid places with high electrical interference.

 

Let us know how it goes.

 

Thanks!

Ej
