Re: no gps overlay on Hero 8

you may try the GoPro App take a video and see if itworks there , then you know its the software of desktop. may not  work with a win 10 platform today since hte Hero 7 of 2018

i've got the same problem, gopro app on desktop & mobile doesn't see the gps data

 

i've used racerender and there telemetry works, so it's not a problem with video

Great. so then its  not the app of gopro.   and certain you were locked on. maybe  do a simple  10 second clip and make sure you are 100% certain you got a lock.  before contacting gopro.  about the issue.

i've made short clip few mins ago and it's the same situation - gopro app doesn't see any telemetry data & other software like racerender have no problem with that
