GoPro Reseting Date and Time

[ New ]

Unsure if this is related to the labs firmware but it seems like my camera loses track of the date and time every time I swap out the battery, even if I take the time to powerdown the camera first. It seems like it's happening at random, even without swapping the battery sometimes. Any insight would be appreciated.

Re: GoPro Reseting Date and Time

If a battery has some charge, removing the battery and replacing it with a charged battery should not reset the date and time. The clock should remain correct for several hours without a battery at all. So loss of time and date normally happens with no battery or a flat battery in the camera for a day or more.  Labs firmware doesn't change this behavior. If date and time are good, and then a battery swap with in a few minutes loses date/time, that might require a support call.
