GoPro Quick GPS Hero 5 Black

 

 

 

GoPro Quick is showing NO GPS DATA. I know for a fact on my Hero 5 Black the GPS icon is on and active. Is there an issue with the GoPro Quick program?

With the Hero5, this can happen if the GPS signal is not strongh enough. You can check how your GPS data looks here: https://goprotelemetryextractor.com/free/

 

And here are some tips and solutions for this problem: https://community.gopro.com/t5/GoPro-Metadata-Visualization-GPS/GoPro-GPS-not-working-Performance-st...

Thanks for the information.

 

So, basically the GPS icon even though showing it has a GPS signal in witch case could be a weak signal.

 

Seems to me that GoPro would know or have the knowledge to put a signal strength icon like a car GPS has. On there GoPro. 

 

Probably the other reason the time stamp doesn't match on the Quick GoPro Info cluster. As the actual time, it was recorded. Witch the time should come from the time on the GoPro.

 

Again thanks for the information.

If you feel you had a lock, got gps on and hte  desktop software failed you, try racerender  see if you get it working ifnot then confirms you did not get a lock at the time.

So, basically even though the GPS icon is lit indicating a GPS signal. It's really not.

One would think that GoPro would have a firmware update to fix such an issue. Without having me paying $49(ridiculous) for a program to fix the GoPro Quick.

You do have GPS data, it does not have the quality Quik expects. As the error message says, increase the GPS Precision option and decrease the GPS Fix option (set it to any), to see the data.

Yeah, done that. Still get the same message on the top.

That's uncommon. It could happen if you lost your GPS signal right after pressing record. That, or the Hero5 was designed to assume the GPS data would arrive at some point.
