Re: Unable to add GPS stickers to GoPro 9 footage.

[ New ]
No, I turned off QuikCapture and performed a test.
The Hero 9 was placed on a stable surface, GPS signal acquired and stable(the GPS icon lit for 1min.) before I pressed the record button.
The only one difference is that I turned the Max Lens Mod setting On/Off
I didn’t physically attach the Max Lens Mod because I think it doesn’t affect the radio reception.
So the result was,
GPS related stickers can be used when Max Lens Mod setting was OFF.
BUT
Those stickers shows “GPS ONLY” and can’t be used when Max Lens Mod setting was ON.

PS. I tried but can’t upload screen capture pic. for ref.

In my tests the GPS works well with the Max Lens Mod. For example https://youtu.be/ymZ40IaxjAc

Hi @shepinhk

I have tested, I've filmed some footage with the Max lens mode attached and I was able to add GPS stickers to my video.
It was probably the video in itself that had GPS data missing or insufficient. Sorry about that.

Also note that an app update is coming up soon and HERO9 firmware as well.

Best,
