Re: No GPS signal on HERO 9

thanks Irishman;

 

the point i'm attempting to get across to gopro is this product launch is so premature it should be classed an abortion. A narrowminded $ grab. There is litterally nothing to use alongside with this camera; hardware and/or software and it's marketed as an end user action camera solution - i was far better off with my 8 which sadly was sold.

 

i agree Quik is a dog of an app.... so whats the $69 subscription good for outside that a decent discount on accessoriess AND NEVER ENOUGH IN STOCK only to pay crazy freight fees unless you hit their minimum free AU$89 shipping quota; the insurance policy is worthless as i don't trust the camera to use it and record for more than 20min before thermally shutting down unknowingly and it gets so hot i can't hold the mount fingers..... 

 

there is so much END OF LIFE going on for bits from the H8 and prior -  so much in their stable of products that are "no longer supported"  hardware and software - its like they are going to market with a fresh idea and forgetting their decade long legacy -  now gone ........ it was everything else that made it special

Re: No GPS signal on HERO 9

Saludos a todos.

Estoy como vosotros ,a mi me aparece que no hay datos gps ,para sobreescribir las telemetrias encima del video.

He reseteado a fabrica ,actualizado manualmente ,y nada ,no funciona.

Intentare ponerme en contacto con el soporte ,haber que solucion se le puede dar ,porque el plazo de devolucion ha terminado ,pero no el de todos los accesorios adquiridos .

Lastima que GOPRO este usando al usuario final como beta tester

Re: No GPS signal on HERO 9

Sorry about the GPS issues, we know it's really frustrating. The team is working on this as I speak and testing out solutions. The fix we are looking at is a firmware fix.

Re: No GPS signal on HERO 9

This is really good news for everyone.  If it's been narrowed down to firmware (which is what some had originally suspected) this means that a fix can be implimented and rolled out.

 

Thank you to the GoPro support staff for letting us know, it's appreciated knowing that they are looking into this and working on it.

 

Now everyone stop complaining about lack of GPS and get out there and shoot footage for the GoPro awards........  I mean, which would you rather have?  GPS stickers or a big chunk of change in your pocket?  

 

Good luck folks and have a great week!

8. Overheating issues - ie suction mount inside a vehicle with little to no air flow

 


gopro7 was worst in heating in the car.

gopro 8 and 9 have the "natural" coolers, the mounting legs.

these act as a coolers.

if gopro7 was very hot below the lens, gopro8 had the legs hot.

gopro7 powered off due to temperature, gopro8 no, even was hot.

 

in gopro9 I did not experienced problems with the temperature.

from exif files, 4K 25fps ~ 1 hour in the car with a warmish air blowing on my windshield (I changed some settings, but not more than 10-15 seconds stopped between videos - therefore the 413-420)

 

26 - to 56 degree Celsius
