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

1 year has passed! Several firmware updates have been released. "No GPS Data" is still not fixed. Great job!

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

[ Edited ]

To add some context, the GPS problems with the Hero8 are different from those in the Hero7 and previous cameras. Not that this explains anything, but just to clarify that they have not been working on the CURRENT GPS problem for that long.

 

The problem in the 7 is intentional, they don't want to show the data if the GPS Fix was not strong enough. With the 8, the problem is Quik cannot read the new data encoding.

Anyway, it really would take them a day or two to push the fix, so they just have other priorities.

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

GoPro Hero 8 user, with everything up to date, still cannot get GPS data in Quik for Mac. Another terrible bug is the very poor video quality, after your preciously created video is saved.

 

Will go with Insta360 next time.

BUMMER - Use the GoPro 7 all weekend and the GPS data is ahead of the video.

My GoPro 6 is perfect but this 7 is CRAP.  I'm looking to swap the usless 7 for a 6 asap.

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

The out of sync gauges are usually not a problem with the camera, but with Quik version 2.7.0. You can solve it by using Quik 2.6.0 or 2.5.0, but then I'm not sure those versions are compatible with the Hero7 GPS data. You can convert the videos with the GPS Quick Fix app to make them backwards compatible (disclaimer, I made that app)

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

Hero 8 here, strange issue, in android gopro app I can turn on the gps gauge, and see the speed, but when I try to save it in Quick, no GPS data, and even in Timeline the gauge is not shown, but if I open the video from my mobile, its there. WTF really? How many days have to pass to fix this. Jeez!
