Re: How to capture GPS tracking on GoPro
The gopro newer models are action cameras and have GPS build in but [a] they are not that good in accuracy and [b] it is clumsy and hard to get the gps files out of the video. The gopro splits long videos (8 minute blocks) and for a 2 hour ride [c] your gopro battery is dead and if not dead you have to extract the GPS files from the video 15 times. I think the best tool for the job is a bikecomputer with gps (garmin hammerhead wazoo) or strava. But again strava is not that accurate on a phone AND offroad the trees and hills disturb the gps signal so expect some errors.
