GoPro Brings GPS and Telemetry Stats to HERO5 Black Footage

New Telemetry Feature in Quik for Desktop Unlocks Your HERO5 Black’s GPS

Unlock the data behind your GoPro content with telemetry gauges available today on the Quik for Desktop app. The new telemetry feature adds an immersive layer to your story by providing stats about the action as it unfolds on-screen, from how fast you were speeding down the line on your last mountain run or big wave, to how high you climbed or how many g’s you pulled in your best track turn.

GoPro telemetry taps into the GPS capabilities of the HERO5 Black by capturing data about your GPS path, speed, altitude, g-force, elevation gain and more. The results are overlaid as graphics on your videos, making your content more meaningful and providing benchmarks and milestones for your experiences. The overlays are also customizable, allowing you to resize and move the gauges and turn on or off each data graphic.

Here’s a more detailed overview of the telemetry data you’ll see in Quik for Desktop with your GPS-activated HERO5 videos:

Info Cluster
See an overview of real-time stats as you watch your video: Distance (km or miles), Altitude, Elevation Gain, Date & time
Speed
Speedometer tells you how fast you were going and includes a compass for orientation
Speed graph displays your speed over time and charts your fastest moments and spikes in activity. Speed graphs also serve as a great tool in the editing and scrubbing process, allowing you to easily identify highlight moments from your footage.

G-Force
Check out how much g-force you’re pulling against as you accelerate or change direction
