Adding map and speedometer widgets in your time-lapse video


by Kris De Decker - published on 29 September 2021 102 -

The latest GoPro action cameras have a built-in GPS. The recorded clips contain the video and location data. The GoPro app on your smartphone allows you to add location related data widgets to your videos. GoPro uses the "Sticker" term to name these widgets. To add geodata stickers to your videos follow these instructions:

1) Ensure the video is recorded with the GPS turned on and locked to the satellites
2) Import the clip in your GoPro smartphone app
3) Enter the clip edit mode
4) Select the sticker widget
5) Add the desired sticker: Map, Altitude, Speed Chart, Speedometer, G-Force, Path
6) Reposition the sticker by clicking it multiple times
Editor's note:
We are also happy to receive many videos of this kind, which you are welcome to send to info@marine-pilots.com (or a link to Dropbox or WeTransfer).
