Je pensais aussi avoir le problème avec ma Gopro.

Il faut simplement l'allumer quelques minutes avant et s'assurer qu'elle capte bien le signal GPS AVANT de commencer l'enregistrement. Donc si vous voulez filmer directement après avoir allumer la caméra, il n'y aura pas e signal GPS enregistré sur la vidéo.

GPS simply does not work with the GoPro Hero 9.  If you turn on the camera, wait a few minutes, the GPS may lock, it may not.  When it does lock, it will lose signal.  None of the GPS information will be recorded or present on the video file, it will only record a single point of data for the entire video.

 

Side by side testing against the GoPro Hero 8 shows that the GoPro Hero 8 GPS is far more reliable.  

 

GoPro have said this is not a hardware issue but a firmware issue and are looking into it, however there has been no further update.
