GoPro Hero5 and gps?

Postby metro2084 » Wed Nov 01, 2017 7:37 am

I’ve been at the track last weekend and was trying to shoot a video with only external cam - hero5. For some reason it didn’t record laps itself, though showed it’s connected. Is this a known problem? Is there a workaround?

Anyways, after this problem, I started video manually and transferred it later to the iPhone through iTunes. Had a problem assigning exact spot on the video where the lap begins. So my question is, since hero5 has built in gps, would it be possible that HLT would use that gps data to assign precise lap start/finish line?

Thank you.

No, that's not supported.
