Fine, as I said, would be nice to have tha meta data, not disagreeing. Have you sent your reqest to gopro or just been ranting here on the **bleep** board?
Again, what if you record video or take photos indoors? no gps data then, regardless of brand....

Of course it has overlay, I never said it didn't. Thats the whole point of an action camera,to overlay data (speed, track, etc) onto the VIDEO just like the GP5.
Your first rant was about showing long/lat on a map. That requiers some work on both cameras, not something out of the box.
As for showing the first long/lat of a gps embedded VIDEOfile in file properties, I'll take you word that the Virb does that. Nice.

I'll agree that the havn't handled the gps implemtation well. Took way too long for a usefull overlay option with Dashware. Quic is a nightmare. :-)
The virb is a good cam, that have also implemeded ODB logging for motorsports. I theory, the GP can do this thru Bluetooth as well, but from what I understand its not there yet. However, the virb has its problems as well. Seprate data file vs gp's embedded has been giving sync problems from what I've heard.
Everyone has their prefferd features. I do not see the problem you are having, very realy look at the file properties and I have everthing save in dayly folders, but eveyone has their way. Fine.
What I would really like is to record a "run" and while preveiwing on the LCD, bring up for example, maximum speed recorded or length of run. max G's etc. Will probably have to wait for the next version.
Have a nice day.
