How to Use Gauges and GPS on Quik for mobile?


How does the Speedometer work on Quik for mobile?

Where does it apply?

  • Quik for mobile
  • HERO7 Black
  • HERO7 Silver
  • HERO6 Black
  • HERO5 Black
  • iOS Devices
  • Android Devices


GPS only works with:
  • HERO5 Black, HERO6 Black, HERO7 Black and HERO7 Silver. 
To display the speedometer on your video clips you need to do the following:
  • Activate GPS on your HERO5/6/7 in "Preferences" / "Regional"
  • When filming, make sure the GPS is locked: the GPS icon becomes white when it's locked, if it's grey, it means GPS tracking is not working yet.
  • Download to your phone via GoPro App - other ways of adding the videos to your device may lose GPS data because of transcoding.
  • Go in the Edit View and activate the "Speedometer" option
  • If you get this message “GPS data too inconsistent” it means that the GPS lock was working during only 0 to 10% of the video duration so it's not possible to display speed because we don't have enough data.
Depending on your region/country you will see x/kmph or x/mph. You can check/change the unit on your device:
  • IOS: 'Settings / General / Language & Region / Region Formats'.
  • ANDROID: change the language of your phone
