GPS issues when recording spans multiple video files

Hi,

 

New GoPro 7 Black owner and have found that any videos that I take, 2.7k/50/W, whe the 3.9GB limit is reached for the video file and another continuation file is spawned. 0n play back the GPS recording stops at the end of the fist file. The rest of the video files play fine just the GPS isn't showing.

 

Is this a Go Pro issue or a extraction issue?

 

Using Racerender 3 and have been for years with a Go Pro 2 with a separate GPS logger.

 

Have not tried different lower 1080p 720p recodings yet to see it the same happens.

Re: GPS issues when recording spans multiple video files

I tried the videos in the Go Pro desktop app, got the same results.

 

1st video the GPS guages present and available to select;

The 2nd continuation video click on the guages and the options all greyed out and a pop saying switch on the GPS before recording.

Re: GPS issues when recording spans multiple video files

Hi @toastfrenzy

 

We have received reports regarding GPS on Quik for desktop.
This has been reported to the team and they are working on it.
In the mean time, you may use Quik fro mobile to overlay telemetry.
Other users also suggest RaceRender or Dashware.

 

Thanks!

Re: GPS issues when recording spans multiple video files

Hi EJ,

 

The same happens in Racerender too.

 

GPS data does not continue past the 1st video file if there is a 2nd or 3rd.

 

Please advise further.

 

Cheers

Re: GPS issues when recording spans multiple video files

To say I'm some what dissapointed that a baisc fuction that should be working out of the box, doesn't, is putting it mildly.

 

I'm expected to now merge my own GPS data files to get it to work properly?

 

Are you serious?
