Re: GoPro hero 7 sliver

@noblewave5026, to record GPS data, your GoPro needs to lock onto a GPS satellite signal. Once GPS is enabled, you will see the GPS icon turn solid on the camera display, confirming that GPS has been found and locked. To find a strong GPS signal, make sure you’re outside and away from large structures. Hold or mount your camera with the top facing upward. It can take up to a minute to establish a signal.

Re: GoPro hero 7 sliver

Are you indoors, surrounded by buildings, or trees? The GPS will only show active when the camera is in line of sight of GPS satellites.
