Hero 6 as a GPS Logger

It's great that the GPS data is embedded into video files, though it would be nice if it was easy to export that data as a separate GPX file.

 

But as well as that, I'd love to see the camera record a GPX file even when it's not recording a video, that way you could use it to show your entire journey throughout the day on a Google Map.

 

If the camera is listening for voice commandsfor 8 hours is ok, then I can't see why we couldn't have an option to record a GPS position to a file once a minute. We're not talking lots of battery or storage here, it wouldn't need any changes to the hardware just a firmware update.
