Re: Quik can�t load the gps data from Hero 7

I’ve been traveling through Europe for two weeks, filming here and there, and I’ve actually had the Mac OS X app work occasionally. It seems it is very picky about the files and I’ve had success with the gauges if I power on the camera and wait 30 seconds or so before starting to film.
If I use quick start, where I just press the trigger when the camera is off, it doesn’t seem to get any gps data and gauges doesn’t work with the iPhone app either.
I need to do some more testing before I declare success.

Re: Quik can�t load the gps data from Hero 7

Did some short tests today, and I made sure that the GPS was locked on. Gauges then works in the iPhone app, but not the OSx app. It appears that the desktop app is picker about the files than the phone app.

Re: Quik can�t load the gps data from Hero 7

I have just had this issue trying to add stickers on the desktop version of Quik, with no luck. It did work in the app on ios, as others have suggested. 

 

Will trim the clips on the desktop app, then transfer back to the phone to add stickers adn see if i have any luck. 

 

Trimming big files on the phone is an absolute pain. 

 

Really disappointing that this hasnt been fixed have been raving about my upgrade to the 7, but has been a bit glitchy from the start, and this is topping it off. Fingers crossed for a fix soon.

When will the application be corrected?

For those wanting to know wether your video file contains GPS data or not, you can quickly find out (and view your GPS track + sensor data) with this online tool

Never. The application will never be corrected. There is no money in fixing this app, so GoPro has moved on to the next piece of buggy harware to sell. It should be pretty obvious by now that exactly ZERO work is being done on the app.

@sunnyhero21776 You're right. If they did not do anything for six months, then there is no hope :(
