Re: No GPS Data Hero 8 Black

For those having the problem on Windows, a user found a possible workaround here: https://community.gopro.com/t5/GoPro-Apps-for-Desktop/Hero-8-Black-GPS-data-is-present-in-files-but-...

It remains to be seen whether this works on mac too.

For other telemetry related questions, see the FAQ post: https://community.gopro.com/t5/GoPro-Metadata-Visualization-GPS/GoPro-GPS-not-working-Performance-st...

Re: No GPS Data Hero 8 Black

Same for me on my GoPro 8, though I found my files did have gps data fortunately as was going batty earlier. I used the online telmetry tool and downloaded VIRBs editor just to verify all was there. Come on GoPro. Parallel a nice application, not app with your tools/cameras. I still use GoPro Studio. A couple of hitches in use but I know them. All my options there and performs quickly besides the file coversion. Going to see if the VIRB exported transparent overlays work there.

Re: No GPS Data Hero 8 Black

Has there been any progress on this?  I've done the Factory Reset and Format and I'm using the Android app.  GoPro Quik doesn't work either.  The telemetry data is there, but no GoPro app sees it.  I've got no issue with GPS lock.  This track shows the path I took through a grocery store.  Clearly the location has some error, but drifting outside of the store isn't the same as putting me in another state or even another zip code.

Re: No GPS Data Hero 8 Black

Like other people on this topic, I have tried everything. I have an icon that says I have a GPS signal, but I can get no app that will display it. I had a GoPro 5 and it worked great. The 8 is a complete pain in the... 1. I always used an external power supply on my GoPro 5. On the 8, I even bought a Chinese extra door so I could use an external power supply safely, but sometimes, GoPro 8 works. Other times it shuts down. I have no way of knowing while on my ride it has shut down, so I can't use it. 2. On the GoPro 5, GPS always worked. I turned the camera on before I left my house, and it always worked. 3. Today, I saw that there was an update. It continued on and on and then said the update failed. The video is great, but my patience is a little thin right now

Re: No GPS Data Hero 8 Black

If the camera recorded GPS data, you can extract it (and much more, especially with the paid version) with this member created program https://goprotelemetryextractor.com/free/

You can learn more about it, and how to use the data, in this group https://community.gopro.com/t5/GoPro-Metadata-Visualization-GPS/gp-p/Hero5MetadataVisualisation
