GPH7B map overlay

[ New ]

I have just used my GPH7B on a skiing trip. I have found how to overlay the GPS path over the video, but I cannot see how to get a map underneath the GPS path.
I have seen videos where this has been done, how I do this on a PC
Regards

You cannot do this on a PC with GoPro software. You can follow this tutorial to create the map overlay on Google Earth: https://youtu.be/yDmpzBedgLk

Or you can edit your videos on your phone, where the GoPro app does allow to overlay some sort of map.

Use these tools to create the 3D GPS map and telemetry overlays.Telemetry Extractor:- Premium: https://goprotelemetryextractor.com/gopro-gps-telemetry-extrac...

Thanks for your reply, however I don't have this option on my phone either. On my phone I only get the option of a basic speedometer, nothing else.

Are you using the standard GoPro App? (Not Quik)

I think your response has identified the issue.

I can get a map overlay on both my phone and my tablet in the GoPro app (not quik) but ONLY if I import the video from the camera in to the app over wi-fi, which takes for ever and also requires internal phone space as it doesn't import to the phones SD card.

So thank you for your help, do you know whether it's possible to have the map overlay on files that I have manually copied to my phones SD card?
