Re: no gps icon on max

@epicboost83617, on your MAX camera's touch LCD screen, swipe the screen down from the top. Once GPS is enabled, you will see the GPS icon turn solid on the camera display, confirming that GPS has been found and locked. Check out this article How to turn on GPS with GoPro cameras for more information.

@epicboost83617, as I've mentioned, you can swipe the screen down from the top to see the GPS icon. See the sample photo below.

Re: no gps icon on max

If there were not enough satellite locks and the GPS data wasn't coming back with a high degree of reliability, the GoPro app will not show GPS (even if some was recorded). Do NOT use Quick Capture and Do NOT use the Quik app. Load you clips into this online program and it should be able to let you know if GPS was captured or not https://goprotelemetryextractor.com/free/

You can find out more about GPS data and how to use it in your videos by following this group https://community.gopro.com/t5/GoPro-Telemetry-GPS-overlays/gp-p/Hero5MetadataVisualisation

Re: no gps icon on max

Hi @epicboost83617 The reason the g-force is not included when exporting to Virb is that the export is done in GPX format, which is designed for location data but not specifically for other data streams
