Map overlay

I just picked up the Hero7 Black and love it so far. My only issue is that there is no MAP overlay in the Quick software (MAC or Windows), although a map overlay is present in the IOS version. Is there any plan to bring the map overlay to the desktop applications? I really need the map overlay for a business project I’m developing.

Re: Map overlay

For GPS data, go into the Trim feature of the app. From there you should be able to add GPS data gauges.

That being said, I really recommend RaceRender (free for 5 min or less videos) or DashWare (GoPro's software they acquired years ago). I personally find RaceRender to be much easier and flexible to use.

Re: Map overlay

Dan, I see all the available telemetry data and “gauge” overlays but their is no map overlay, just a gps path. I also looked into Dashware but it doesn’t seem to have a map overlay either...

Re: Map overlay

Ah, I get what your asking now. Sorry, I don't know about map overlay. I was thinking the GPS path. I think if you look in the RaceRender FAQ docs, you can learn how to do this.

Re: Map overlay

Dan,
I’ll look into it... Hopefully Gopro will add this feature to the desktop applications soon. It’s in the IOS version but not on OSX or Windows

Re: Map overlay

I spoke with tech support and they said that the MAP plugin is not currently part of Gauges on the desktop versions (bummer), but they did say they are currently working on implementing it..... Let's hope so because the GPS track, to me, is useless without a map overlay.

 As you can see from the screenshot from an IOS device, it IS available on gauges on an IOS device, but unfortunately currently missing from the desktop versions :(

Re: Map overlay

Wow this is dissapointing for sure.  I am wondering if the battery life for GPS is even worth it without map overlay.

 

How good is the iOS version of the map overlay?  I will hold out hope!

 

Thanks,

Beau

Re: Map overlay

There is even issue between iOS devices. I get map overlay on IPhone XS, but not overlay shown on iPad Pro :(
