HERO 8 LOCATION ICON DOES NOT TURN SOLID

[ New ]

I've tried turning on and off location, waited outdoors for 10 minutes, and doing a factory reset but to no avail. Can someone please help, I've tried contacting customer service but there's no reply.

In some very rare cases, though, I have seen cameras with a faulty GPS antenna. If nothing works, that could be your case.
