no gps data in hero 8

The GPS data in the Hero 8 Black is there but Gopro Quik doesn't recognise it. This has been a problem for several months yet Gopro seems to be ignoring it. It's sad Gopro can't seem to get their own software to work with the equipment they sell.

Re: no gps data in hero 8

GoPro only no other company software:  gopro out of the Box the GPS will work. allow a lock and  an additional minute or two.   SImply use the GoPro Mobile app.

 

Desktop Quick no longer is usable with Guages, on  the Newer platforms win 10.   GoPro rarely offers public notifications of their issues.

If Gopro is going to recommend Gopro Quik Desktop to every new user, then they must keep the software up to date and ensure the software works with their newest cameras. If they're going to abandon the software then at least inform their users.
