GoPro Quik for Windows and MacOS was discontinued some years ago. The GPS data in newer cameras (HERO8, MAX, HERO9, HERO10, HERO11) is in a format that Quik does not understand, but the files can be converted to make them compatible.
Your video can contain GPS data even if GoPro Quik says the opposite. You can use Telemetry Extractor to find out. Load your original video file, select the GPS stream and choose "View Map". If the path looks correct, your GPS data is good. Otherwise you might have to work on the quality of your GPS signal.
The latest published version of GoPro Quik had some issues that were never solved, including problems syncing the GPS data to the video and bad timestamps (info cluster). Use one of these instead (links from official GoPro servers):
Before installing a different version of GoPro Quik, backing up your original GoPro video files is recommended, just in case.
It works with most files, but GoPro Quik has some limitations
In these cases, use Telemetry Overlay instead.
Yes. On Quik for Windows and MacOS you can select imperial or metric units from the Settings of the program. On Android or iOS (iPhone/iPad), you need to change the language and region settings of your phone/tablet to one where the units you are interested in apply.
Time lapses are a special case where the data is unlikely to be in sync with the video. As opposed to real time videos, version 2.7.0 of Quik is recommended for time lapses. You should also use the "Brute Force" mode of GPS Quick Fix. Even then, great results are not guaranteed, and using Quik 2.7.0 will break the sync of real-time videos, so upgrading to Telemetry Overlay is a better solution for most users.
It converts the GPS data of HERO8 and newer cameras to the format used in the HERO7 and older, which is what GoPro Quik can understand. You then need to move the converted file to the Media folder of GoPro Quik and refresh it from the Settings, for it to detect the new file with visible data.
Yes. Telemetry Overlay is a much more user friendly alternative. Just drag and drop your videos into the program to display their GPS and sensor data. You can join multiple videos with data, customize the data and how it looks... it's night and day.
Some users might also be interested in creating their own layout in Adobe After Effects with the Telemetry Templates, or in extracting the data to other formats for custom workflows or data analysis with Telemetry Extractor
Yes. Double click your video file, add the gauges in the preview window and use the scissors icon to (optionally) trim the clip and save it to your desktop as a file.

It's really fantastic. I can now take a 100% out of my Hero 8. Personal customer support was the best part. Help was quick and clear.
Thank you so much! It works now.
Thank you so much for this. So worth it!
