Re: No GPS Data Hero 8 Black

[ New ]
Hero 8 black gps lock and no data to show gauges in quick desktop (Mac or PC) or speed limit using quick mobile app.

Annoying as - - - -

Is this going to be fixed?

Rumor is that GoPro is working on a new desktop app, so yes, it's expected that it will be fixed.

Until then you have options.
The best solution I've found is using the user created Telemetry Extractor and the Garmin desktop app Virb Edit. Both can be used for free and give great results.

You can find out more about utilizing GPS (and other Telemetry and metadata captured by the camera) at this GoPro Support group.

Can't get this trick to work, tried with HERO or Hero caps, but it will not work on my desktop laptop. On the IOS app everything works fine (all gps data is recorded in the video file)

Hi @jaspert32 ,

 

Which trick are you referring to? The XML change to Quik? For that to work, you need to revert your camera firmware to an older version. With the new firmware, Quik cannot understand the GPS data, even with the xml hack.

 

You can find other alternatives here: https://community.gopro.com/t5/GoPro-Metadata-Visualization-GPS/GoPro-GPS-not-working-Performance-st...

@kajuna,
I was referring to making a hero8blackGPMF.xml file.
I will check the alternatives, but hopefully GoPro comes with an update of the desktop app soon.
