Re: No GPS Data Hero 8 Black

Almost a year and not even an indicator they are working on it. I consider this lousy product support. They really want you to use their phone app, but as a 60 year old person, I would rather use my 32" monitor than squint at a 6" screen! How can you sell something that people cannot even access features on?

 

As a suggestion, perhaps they can make a firmware upgrade that allows it to save gpx data alongside the regular MP4. Then we could continue to use our other software!

Please call their support or better yet ask for status via social media like Twitter.  If enough people request this feature maybe we stand a chance.

Re: No GPS Data Hero 8 Black

I updated the current software (HERO8 Black v2.00 | August 27, 2020) today and I the GPS data still not working! :(
This is very bad and I am disappointed! Because the bug is not fixed with the new software version!
