It may take several minutes to obtain the coordinates of your location. The availability and quality of GPS signals may be affected by your location, buildings, natural obstacles, and weather conditions. If you share a file that includes location information, the location information is shared and your location may be visible to third parties viewing the file. The device requires network services to acquire location information.

Location information indicators:

qgn-indi-cam4-geotag-off.jpg - Location information unavailable. GPS stays on in the background for several minutes. If a satellite connection is found and the indicator changes to qgn-indi-cam4-geotag-on.jpg within that time, all the images captured and video clips recorded during that time are tagged based on the received GPS positioning information.

qgn-indi-cam4-geotag-on.jpg - Location information is available. Location information is added to the file details.

Location information can be added to an image or a video clip if location coordinates are found via the network. It may take several minutes to receive the coordinates. The best conditions are obtained in open areas away from high buildings.

If you share your image or video which has location information attached to it, the location information is also shared and your location may be visible to third parties that can view the image or the video.

You may disable the geotagging service in camera settings.
