Re: No GPS Data Hero 8 Black

Here's the solution I came up with. It's compatible with the latest Hero8 and Max firmware. It forces Quik to display the gauges (also on older cameras).

Hope this helps

NO! this doesn't fix the solution.  I did that. I was at Disneyland with more than enough open space.  The camera showed gps lock the whole time yet no gps data on import

Re: No GPS Data Hero 8 Black

Before you started recording, did you check to see if you had GPS satellite lock? On the pull down, the GPS pin icon will light up (White) when there is a lock. Otherwise, just having GPS ON does not guarantee GPS data will be captured.

@sprymesa32 do you get any GPS data if you test your video files here? https://goprotelemetryextractor.com/free
