Why is my metadata being lost when I export from the GoPro app

I seem to be losing metadata any time I export from the GoPro app. This happens if I export to my iPhone photos app or to quick. In quick if I try to add say a speedometer overlay the app says I need to utilize a camera with GPS. I am using a hero 7 black and I have the gps function turned on. I can easily add an overlay inside the GoPro app so I know the data is there from the camera.

Hi @rf0860

 

The GoPro app will only work with the GPS information from GoPro files.

It will not read GPS information from other sources.

 

Thanks!

Maybe I wasn’t being clear. I can see the gps data inside the GoPro app. It appears to be lost when I export from the GoPro app to the Quick application

Got it @rf0860

 

Is this also on the mobile version or the desktop version?

We have received several reports regarding GPS on Quik for desktop.

This has been raised to the team and we are waiting for updates.

In the mean time, you  may try other applications to overlay telemetry.

Other users suggest RaceRender or Dashware.
