When you want to use GPS, you turn it on in the settings but you want to wait til the GPS gets a lock before you start recording. Sometimes it gets a lock really quick, sometimes takes a while.

GPS retains for hours when you recently use it.. it will take longer when you pass the period left off for a good day or two...

So Yes some Users see this as an issue and some do not.

When I head out to a trip and use the camera to get GPS I must lock on outdoors and before I go indoors.. Some closures you can get to capture GPS in a Plane, and that can take a good 15 minutes to lock on.

Well I'll throw another if not repeated do not pull the camera off the charger while charging it can keep on the led light and people simply throw in the pocket not inspecting it, and the bat can get drained.

Yeah, its probably a hit and miss thing with the GPS. GoPro has a long way to go to really make this a feature that people will want to use. Its not a real big issue for me, I can live without it. Anyways, the app is so messed up that the only way that I can get the GPS stuff to work is to use the phone which I really don't like to use.

i dont use GPS feature at all, so i dont mind it being bugged or not. after few months of use i have noticed only one issue you guys mentioned, twice i grabbed my cam to quickly shoot something and it was completely drained. But it doesnt happen often, so its strange. but i got into habit of pulling the battery out when i know im not gonna need it for extended periods of time. Cant wait for summer, i have nice busy trip planned full of interesting places.

Yeah GPS is fun to use if you got something you like to share, other then that I know the places i gone to. once you put the guages on and best not to lose your original footage . overlaying a video and on line its toasted in.

lets note the problems the Hero 7 has here.

Okay so the last two hiking trips my H7B has started to not turn on occasionally. I have to pull the battery before it will start up. Anyone else seen this problem? Also, donít know if itís related or not but turning on one time it said my SD card had an error and had to be formatted in order to be used. Well heck! I was *this* close to formatting it so I could at least use it but decided to power it off and put it back in my pocket. A bit later I decided to try it again and no error reported. I almost lost the whole dayís work for nothing.

Cheeky little thing. It almost pranked you.

But yes, i had this before. I always restart first to see if it solves the issue. Few times i had to pull out the battery to make it work, too.

During last weekend it stopped recording randomly, i didnt notice and i clicked upper button to stop recording (i had it on chest mount, didnt check the status) which in fact started another video, and continued to shoot for full hour until the battery died.

I dont shoot quick action so i dont realy care, but it is unfortunate.

No update was released in a long time now and i guess no more updates will come, as we know Gopro they are probably working 110% on Hero8 and already forgot that something like hero7 exists.
