Gopro Hero5 black GPS turns on and off randomly

I notice it turns off the GPS if i pick up the gopro or move the it while it's on and GPS turns on again randomly. What is going on?

Could the GPS be on all the time and is just getting a signal when you move it to a different location?

The GPS is on all the time. It just turns itself on and off even if I move the camera 1 inch.

Now that’s weird. Could there be any kind of interference or metal objects nearby blocking the signal? If not, then contact Support.

There are no magnets nearby or anything that should cause that. Also, when i make a video the speedometer does not move until somewhere near the end of the video, other gauges are frozen too but fix there selfs near the end.
