Yesterday, I was using my Hero 7 Black to do a 3 hour video to do a timelapse - Driving there no issue at all - recorded the whole time. Coming back - it would keep crapping out with Repairing File and would not even record. Very odd. Using the GoPro recommended sd card as well. Was plugged into power from my truck so battery was 100%.

Try doing a full format of your memory card in a PC or Mac. Not the quick format. I had my Hero 7 Black replaced because of odd things like that. Turned out a full format of the card was the real solution. Oh, and this card was supplied by GoPro at the time of purchase.

I contacted GoPro support - their tech said if you are running the camera on external power from a vehicle to take the battery out and run it wo the battery. It's odd because had no issue with the Hero 5 or 6 Black doing the same thing.

something to do with the newly chip and draw. gopro bat power drop causes the cam to shut off so we now must remove the bat to run longer times. to top it off add the external mic in to the external power you also have aud issues.

Wow! Very interesting but frustrating. I would worry about an inadvertent power interruption. Without the battery to carry you through seems like you’re trading one problem for another

The GPS is total junk on the Hero cameras - the app even makes it worse. Sucks that they put a feature with potential and it is so full of bugs and issues that it just is much easier to just leave it off.

GoPro knows a issue exists and it hardly gets addressed because they have no clue how to fix them, seems they are more interested in their sales then the actual camera. The GPS fails to work in a Windows platform of my machine, even on another windows machine. So lucky me I grab a Hero 6 and just use it for those occasions when the Hero 7 fails. Twice this happened but i was well prepared the next time. and verified i was correct, not us consumers but a gopro issue Lol.
