GoPro 7 Black - GPS data inaccurate - cycling

Hi GP,

 

I've started using my GP 7 Black a few days ago, hoping to be a good replacement for my previous action cam with GPS.

And, even though the video quality is much better than the other one, the GPS data is waaaaay off.

 

I've been recording GPS data using 3 different devices:

  • GP 7
  • Garmin Virb XE
  • Smartphone

and to be honest I'm not sure if my GP7 was following the same route as me (and other 2 devices) :/

 

During my daily commute I have to stop a few times on red lights - for good half a minute, and according to GP GPS data I was all the time cycling 25kmh+

 

From my point of view it's pointless to have a cam with GPS, when GPS recorded data is not in sync with the video whatsoever.

 

When is it going to be fixed?
