GPS data missing on some videos on Hero 7.

[ New ]

My GPS data is turned on.  I am using the Android app.

I record using quickcapture using only the red button.

Some videos have GPS some do not.  And some have poor data.

 

Is this a case where the GPS is not loading sattelites fast enough for the video recording?  Should I not use quickcapture to record GPS data?

Hi @leeroy9966

 

Do you have the camera up to date? What SD card are you using?

 

If you need to record with GPS data, it is best to turn the camera ON using the Mode button before pressing the shutter button.

Recording  via QuikCapture, may not give your camera enough time to establish GPS connection.

Please do some test recordings and compare results.

 

Let us know how it goes.

 

Thanks!

Ej
