Hero 8 Black Has Anyone Used DASHWARE App for GPS INFO

[ New ]

Hero 8 Black Has Anyone Used DASHWARE App for GPS INFO. I have tried briefly with no success. I used it many times for Hero 7 & 6 Black with no issues

I strongly suggest trying out this member created GPS metadata extractor. https://tailorandwayne.com/gopro-telemetry-extractor/# You can then use the file in Dashware.

You can also get great information to help you out by joining this group https://community.gopro.com/t5/GoPro-Metadata-Visualization/gp-p/Hero5MetadataVisualisation

I have tried it but its still failing, I presume its because we need the Hero8 profile?

 

All other support emails/websites/youtube advice are for the Hero7, using the hero7 profile, but I guess we have to wait until someone creates one for the 8?

 

Otherwise a no go so far, I download the clip from the cloud, then edit in mobile app GoPro and add stickers there, but when exported, its a poorer quality, so would welcome any news on DashWare and Hero8 :)

This resolves the issues for Hero 5, 6, & 7

 

I have tested this and it works perfectly

 

When GoPro updates Quik for Hero 8 this same procedure will apply

Yes, the profiles are around for the older models, but not the 8.

 

Its incredible to think that GoPro purchased Dashware... but doesnt get them to create a GoPro8 Profile upon release...
