GPS

Tried everything to get data on the Gauges.

Switching on and waiting for 5 mins before recording,checking the GPS symbol is solid white.

Nothing I have done has worked.

Is this a fault with the camera and therefore claim for a replacement under guarantee or a problem that GoPro are addressing?

 

Any input would be greatly appreciated.

 

Regards

Re: GPS

Same thing here. I was out this past weekend with my new 8, my 7 and my 5.  Had all three starting and stoping at the same time.  The 7 and 5 both have GPS data but the 8 did not.  I actually just returned that camera because I had a trade in to get a better price.  Haven't gone out with the new one yet but I'll let you know when I do.

Re: GPS

In many cases the problem is in the Quik desktop software, not the camera. You can check if the camera recorded a GPS signal at all here: https://tailorandwayne.com/gopro-telemetry-extractor/

But keep in mind that if the GPS signal is no good enough (which happens A LOT) Quik will just ignore it so as to not show a wrong gps path, speed, etc.

Re: GPS

  Many thanks Kajuna,the telemetry extractor shows all of the Gauges do in fact work,I assume it must be a fault/glitch in the GoPro Quik program.

It's reassuring to know the Hero 8 is not faulty.

 

Many thanks again

Re: GPS

So are you saying that Quik has a problem with the Hero 8 only?  I don't have this problem with my two 5s and my 7.

Re: GPS

Hi Jetskierorl,I don't have this problem with my Hero 7 black when using the Gauges on Quik.It runs without fault.That's what is making me think there must be incompatibilities with Hero 8 and Quik.
