Gopro 7 Black issues / GPS

[ Edited ]

I really want to like this camera after having a go pro 4 silver but seem to be buggy! 

 

It will not turn on from time to time & you have to pull the battery which is annoying. Start to think its faulty.


I have only got the GPS to work once & another time it was all messed up, no speed etc! I have updated it twice and have reset it.GPS is turned on & goes white on the display.Anyway to check the gps is actually working with different software?

 

The newest Go pro-Quik seem to be buggy and crashes a lot! Trying an older version which may have helped.
