Hero 6 black gps data always show zero

Even when gps on and white. And app will say there is gps data. The compass always pointed north. Mph is always zero. And Gs always zero.
I have 2 hero 6 blacks neither works. Most the time it just says no gps data. I have tried a couple of times.

Hi @gq4life

 

Sorry for any troubles caused.

Please see if resetting the camera will take care of the issue.  Reset Camera Settings

If it's still the same, proceed with a manual software update. https://gopro.com/update

 

What application did you use to overlay telemetry?

You may also try other applications like Dashware and RaceRender.

 

Let us know how it goes.

 

Thanks!

Re: Hero 6 black gps data always show zero

Ok factory ressetted it. Didn't touch anything on settings. Let protune off. Turned it on this time and waited till it had gps lock and it stayed white without turning grey. Then started recording and it worked. Im try other camera see if i wait a minute with camera on for light to turn white and stay white then record if that one works
