Re: No GPS Data Hero 8 Black

"Has this been resolved upon anyone's knowledge?"


Haha ... you're a prankster ...

Nobody expects that .... Gopro can do marketing, but then it's done. The company is a joke.

My "Hero" 8 will be for sale as soon as DJI brings a cam with GPS and a few other little things onto the market ...

Re: No GPS Data Hero 8 Black

Hi! 

No, i think only in next camera (may be not)

 

I found only paid solution in the internet. One guy made a program for takind and updating GPS date from video file.

Re: No GPS Data Hero 8 Black

You can, as designed, use GPS stickers with the GoPro mobile app. Other workarounds are using the FREE telemetry extractor and Dashware, Virb Studio, RaceRender, and/or Adobe After Effects.

The HERO8 obtains GPS data just fine, so there is nothing wrong with the camera. It uses a very good UBlox GPS chip. Of course, it is the user's responsibility to ensure that 1) There are adequate satellites 2) kp index isn't above 4 3) the camera has an unobstructed view of a clear blue sky 4) The camera is powered on for at least 2-3 minutes (longer is better) prior to starting the recording.

Like said otherwise they  are in the works and that was a good 3/4 year  guess the  software company legacy is still working on it.
