Re: Hero 8 Black - GPS data is present in files, but apps say it isn't and won't display gauges

If the GPS icon was white and you do not get GPS data here https://goprotelemetryextractor.com/free

 

You might have a faulty unit. I recommend testing again with a new video and making sure the GPS icon is white for one minute before hitting record. If still nothing, I would say your unit could by faulty. Contact support

FYI, for some reason, the GPS/telemetry/etc data will show up on Quik on my iPad.  As for everything else (desktop, phone), we are still stuck at NOTHING, which is definitely unacceptable.  I've always been an early adopter, and I HATE to say this, but this feels DJI-ish, and I HATE putting GoPro and DJI in the same sentence.

@ricardoc8871 Yes, you have GPS data. Click on GPS and then on Graph or View Map to see it

@ricardoc8871 see my post earlier about creating the Hero8blackGPMF.xml file. It wasn't working for me on desktop until I created that file. There may be a similar thing you can do on Android.

@kajuna então se tenho dados GPS, porque é que não trabalha no desktop e no android, como acontecia com a Gopro 7??? Supostamente os usuários da Gopro 8 não deveriam andar com estes problemas de não conseguir usar os medidores, porquem não somos todos entendidos em informática, e gostavamos de usar a gopro de forma fácil...

The desktop problem is known and we are waiting for a fix. See here: https://community.gopro.com/t5/GoPro-Metadata-Visualization-GPS/GoPro-GPS-not-working-Performance-st...

On Android, it's more complicated. It can depend on the quality of the signal, which depends on many thing (like the way you mount the camera... hard to tell)

@kajuna mas é muito estranho, porque se a gopro 7 funcionava perfeitamente, a Gopro 8 nas mesmas condições não funciona, isso é muito estranho....
