I have just bought a Black 7, used it for the first time last night, I then downloaded the videos to my iPhone and I could see the GPS data, I then sync'd to the cloud and downloaded it to my Windows PC and the GPS data is missing... why??

What application are you using to view/play the files back?
We have received reports regarding GPS on Quik for desktop.
This has been reported to the team and they are working on it.
In the mean time, you may use Quik fro mobile to overlay telemetry.
Other users also suggest RaceRender or Dashware.

You must use the go pro app
Edit your video
Add the gauges
You have to process the video
You have to save the result on your phone
This video may help you
Skip at 8:10
If you do not have GPS gauges it means that you don't have them ..

I have bought an Hero6 black especially for GPS
Activate the GPS (!)
Be outdoor turn your go pro on
Wait 20 second and watch the GPS sign (a water drop as on Google map)
If you do not see it ====> the GPS is turned of
If you see it gray ====> the signal is not good enough (if you are in a tunnel get out) else move !
If you start without white signal your trip will be without GPS data !!!
If you start with white signal it will work
If you have problems with memory make a short film !
I use Quik on PC it works but huge files
I use the Android GoPro app it is surprisingly good ! Film are magically compressed with overlay (except map)
So try again and comme back to tell us

Thanks for all your replies.
After more testing I see that the only platform that supports reading the GPS data is iOS, it doesn't work on Windows, MAC, or Android!
Pretty poor consdiring the main reason I bought a GoPro was for the GPS data.
I think I summarised pretty well on my first post, the data is in the video and it works on iOS, the same video on all the other platforms fails with GPS.

Other apps that will also work are Dashware, RaceRender, and Virb Edit (extracting the GPS data with the online tool necessary).
if using your iPhone is more convenient, go into the cut/trim option and add the GPS gauges and save the video as a new file. You can then upload to GoPro Plus or copy the file to your desktop.
