Gopro 8 gps data not recognised by quik

Hey, I’ve seen other posts about this and not found a solution; anybody know what’s up with quik not recognising GPS data?

Please don’t waste my time with any inane questions about settings, quik version, gopro firmware, “was GPS turned on/were you outside”, what os are you running, or suggesting to turn stuff off and on, factory resets; I’m not stupid.

This is a quik issue simply not recognising data that’s there, and I’m keen to know if there’s a fix in quik or if it’s just stuffed and there’s another app that can do this.

Quik for desktop is not compatible with the GPS data in the new cameras (Hero8 and Max). Quik mobile is, but gauges will only be active if you have a very strong and constant GPS signal.

You can find alternative software here: https://community.gopro.com/t5/GoPro-Metadata-Visualization-GPS/GoPro-Telemetry-Resources-software/g...

Or you can convert your video files to make them compatible with Quik: https://youtu.be/nY4LfVFViT0

I try it and nothing WORKS I can only see the data on the FREE version I'm not going to paid a dime just for only to see the GPS positioning on my footage. And it is QUIK just doesn't recognize the DATA from the footage of the HERO 8 SUCKS... 

 

And GoPro people don't want to TALK about it, we have to figure it out by our own, that's mean if we are lucky we provide our own solution to other users FOR FREE.

You can also edit your video with gauges in Virb Edit, for free.
