Re: No GPS Data Hero 8 Black

We created a FAQ post that answers some of these questions here: https://community.gopro.com/t5/GoPro-Metadata-Visualization-GPS/GoPro-GPS-not-working-Performance-st...

Also, as Daniel pointed out, you can use the Telemetry Extractor to evaluate whether the problem is in the camera or in the software

(as exaplined, currently Quik for desktop has problems with Hero8 footage, which should be fixed at some point)

Re: No GPS Data Hero 8 Black

Grazie per aver condiviso la FAQ. Ho avuto lo stesso problema, pur formattando la scheda SD e facendo un reset della videocamera non ho risolto. Proverò con l’app mobile, cercando di aggiungere gli adesivi. Ma come mai in luoghi dove altri dispositivi GPS prendono (tipo l’Apple Watch) la GoPro non prende? Esistono degli attachement per amplificare il segnale GPS in zone coperte?

Re: No GPS Data Hero 8 Black

@zuchi13 Other devices can get better GPS signal, even indoors, because they use cellular antennas for reference. GoPros can only use GPS satellites, which are not always visible. Maybe the Apple Watch takes advantage of the cellular signal of your phone?

You can attach an external GPS antenna to a GoPro via bluetooth, but that will probably not enable the stickers, as the data format will be very different (I believe). That would be something interesting to try, anyway.

Re: No GPS Data Hero 8 Black

Also...Karte formatiert, GoPro zurückgesetzt, bei der Montage die GoPro gemäß FAQs ausgerichtet. Eingeschaltet und gewartet mit dem Beginn der Aufnahme, bis das GPS Symbol in der Kamera weiß ist.
Resultat im fertigen Video...keine GPS Daten vorhanden :(
Das Analyse Tool zeigt ebenfalls an, das keine Daten vorhanden sind...

Zum Thema GPS und Mobilfunkantenne....meine Fenix 5X hat definitv keine Mobilfunkantenne integriert...und da funktioniert der Empfang

Re: No GPS Data Hero 8 Black

@kajuna grazie per le delucidazioni. Tuttavia ho provato ad aggiungere il tachimetro dall'applicazione mobile Quik, senza riscontrare positività. Infatti, appare il messaggio "No Data" pur avendo il segnale gps attivo e in bianco. Se a questo punto fosse un problema di firmware della GoPro?

Re: No GPS Data Hero 8 Black

I have same problem here... Factory reset and formating didn´t work...
I can extract telemetry at https://tailorandwayne.com/gopro-telemetry-extractor/#
Should be fine for the movie took by Goporo Hero 8 & something wrong with the Quick software but it works well for the video I took by Gopro Hero 5...

Re: No GPS Data Hero 8 Black

Ottimo! I dati vengono estratti, quindi posso assolutamente rimuovere il dubbio GoPro

Re: No GPS Data Hero 8 Black

@riddla80 If the GPS icon was white and you still get no GPS data here: https://goprotelemetryextractor.com/free/

I would say your unit is defective. Try contacting GoPro support

 

@loyalgorge14018 Quik for desktop (mac/win) apparently does not suport Hero8 gauges yet, as explainded here: https://community.gopro.com/t5/GoPro-Metadata-Visualization-GPS/GoPro-GPS-not-working-Performance-st...
