Error Importing .gpx

ilana Dec 07, 2012 06:25PM MST

I shot some video and the GPS apparently wasn't hitting the satellite because I didn't get any data. I created a relevant gpx file using Google Maps and tried to import it I got an error "GPX parsing failed. Reason: Missing "time" tag"

Can I see what the proper gpx format is so I can add in time tags to the gpx file and import it into Storyteller?

Hi Ilana,

Thanks for contacting Contour Technical Support. We don't officially support importing GPS data that was not generated by the camera, but I suspect that the header in the file you created is not correct.

Try shooting a video with GPS data and then exporting that GPS data. Then you can compare the header on a GPX file created by the camera to the GPX file you created.
