Gauges (GPS data) is not in sync with video (Hero 5 Black)

[ New ]

This was the first time I have recorded GPS data with the Hero5 Black camera.  When I played the video in Quik the motion was inconsistent with the data displayed in the GPS gauges. 


The video was of a rowing boat (racing single) on the water.  The gauges showed the boat as stationary when it was moving and vice versa.  In addition, the compass shows wild changes in direction (60 degrees or more) while the boat is not moving. 


Is this a bad camera?  Or imature technology?   Is there a fix?

Hi @davef


We have been receiving reports about inaccurate GPS information when using Quik for desktop.

Our team is working on it.


In the mean time, you may try using Quik for mobile or 3rd party applications like Racerender or Dashware.
