I am having the exact same issue. At first I thought the camera was faulty and was not getting/capturing GPS data. But the GoPro iOS app defintely sees GPS data and I am able to add gauges accordingly when doing a simple video edit within the app. But if I download the exact same file to my desktop PC runnings Windows 10 and the latest GoPro Quik app (126.96.36.1995) it tells me there is no GPS data.

@braveexper33153, currently, Quik for desktop doesn’t support camera firmware updates or telemetry gauges for your HERO8 Black camera. We are focusing on adding this functionality to our latest GoPro Desktop application in the near future, but in the meantime, the GoPro App on iOS and Android can both update your camera and also add telemetry gauges as well.
In the meantime, apologies for any inconvenience. Your patience and understanding are very much appreciated.

Thank you for the response/explanation to this thread, definitely helps to have confirmation. For those following this thread, depending on what activity you are trying to add gauges to, a hack that you may want to explore is to use a fitness tracker with GPS, start an activity during your GoPro recording to capture GPS coordinates, find a way to download the data for that activity (like a Garmin .fit file), and then use Garmin VIRB Edit software to sync things up. If you Google "gopro garmin virb edit" you'll likely see a YouTube tutorial come up from Shane Miller's channel on how to do this. The gauges are really cool...I've played with this recently and it works really good and is super easy to do.

Just to complement your reply, you can achieve the same without an external tracker by converting the GoPro telemetry to GPX (use the free Telemetry Extractor). That's as long as your GPS signal is good enough, of course
