Re: GPS specifications for Hero 6 Black

Thanks for the pointer, @aragon1006 . While interesting, this is not what I'm looking for. My original question was more around the GPS specifications of the GoPro Hero 6 Black, e.g. what's the frequency of the 3-axis gyro readings, GPS position reading frequency, and such.

 

Thanks,

 

Georg

Re: GPS specifications for Hero 6 Black

The GoPro reps may be unable (or unwilling) to answer such a question for you, however according to the teardown online, the GPS chip used is a u-bloxM8 GNSS chip.  So you may want to search the specs on that.

Re: GPS specifications for Hero 6 Black

Thanks @irishmanpdx. That helps. I found the data sheet for the GPS unit. According to the data sheet, speed at GPS Long/Lat are sampled at 18Hz. That matches what I see when I extract the GPS data from the MP4 video stream.
