What is GPS assist data?

Applicable Products and Categories of This Article

GPS assist data provides information about the location of the GPS satellites. By writing this information to your camera with the PlayMemories Home software or Action Cam Movie Creator, your camera can find and lock onto the GPS signal faster.

NOTE: For HDR-AZ1VR/VB/VW, the GPS function is on the supplied Live-View Remote and not the camera itself. The GPS signal is displayed on the LCD screen of the remote control.

When the camera is connected to your computer with an active Internet connection, GPS assist data is automatically transferred to the camera using the PlayMemories Home software or Action Cam Movie Creator.
