The only way that I found was by using a 3rd party app, you can do it using the horrendous youtube editor... but lets face it, that's a proper ballache.

If you use a Mac, then iMovie will join edit and render.

 

For PC and Mac try Blackmagic's DaVinci resolve (free but limited)


 

Thanks for your suggestion. I am testing it.

 

I suppose that when you join multiple files some overlay data becomes unsuseable. For example, total distance, total elevation or speed graph will not be consistent and will show information for each segment only.

 

Will racerender solve this problem ? Can it merge multiple files and insert gps overlay from all files ?

 

BTW, I have tried merge function in Dashware. Videos merged correctly. Data however is not merged and Dashware shows an error. Resulting large mp4 has no gps data embeded.

Yes racerender will do the job, but it's not free. There is a demo though that lets you test it to destruction.

Re: Ridiculous State of affairs Hero 6 and GPS

I have the same issues... And they have no fix for it confirmed by their support tonight. And NOW after only owning it and using it ONCE. The **bleep** camera's lcd screen is black and wont turn on. Unreal. Waste of money and horrible **bleep**ing support man. just awful experience with this company and their "top of the line camera"

LCD screens going out usually is a result of the user trying to push the SD card into the gap between the SD card slot and the battery. Once this has happened, the LCD display is most likely severed.
