The recording format does not generally affect the GPS data. Here are some tips for improving the conditions so you have better chances of recording a GPS signal: https://community.gopro.com/t5/GoPro-Metadata-Visualization-GPS/GoPro-GPS-not-working-Performance-st...

Hello @soloflight79. Just to check, are you trying to attach the GPS sticker to your video using the GoPro App on your mobile device?

Yes works fine when filming both formats but if only in this format it says No GPS over the sticker

Hello!

What program do you use to extract GPS data?
The GoPro Quik desktop application does not support the display of GPS data.

I was forced to buy a program that converts the GPS data in the video files into one that Quik can read as well.

I don’t understand why the desktop app isn’t done properly?
The mobile app cannot be used for anything as it reduces the recording bitrate.

In vain do you record something with a high bitrate. If the mobile app puts on the gps data, the new video will be saved at a low bitrate.

The GoPro App has it built in, edit the video in GoPro App media album, slide the edit over to reveal Stickers

That’s exactly what I wrote about, that the mobile app isn’t good for anything.
Displays GPS data, but the converted video is saved at a low bit rate.

hi,

 

@aenriquez seems that the GPS data are missing.

 

when I manage to make a clip with valid GPS data, the mobile GoPro is capable to convert them in stickers.

in the linked post you will find that the GPS is not consistent.

 

hero9... mounted on the handlebar, car windshield, hold in my hand when walking, chest-mounted, backpack-mounted - no steady GPS.

 

jumps from 3D reading to 2D and none
