Unable to use the Multi View and GPS Data Overlay features of PlayMemories Home 3.0 with the Action Cam.

    To resolve this issue, the date and time must first be manually set in the camera. Also, update the PlayMemories Home software to version 3.0.02 or later.

    The Multi View and GPS Data Overlay features will not work if the time and date was not set on the camera before recording or if you are using version 3.0.00 or 3.0.01 of the PlayMemories Home™ software. 

    IMPORTANT: If the time and date were not set before recording, the correct log data was not acquired; in this case it will not be possible to use Multi View or GPS Data Overlay with the imported video. However, if you did set the date and time before recording, you will be able to use these features by re-importing the video clips with the GPS data into the updated PlayMemories Home 3.0.02 software.


    • A summer time (aka daylight savings time) setting is not available on the camera. The time is adjusted automatically after the GPS signal is acquired by the camera.
    • Make sure GPS is set to On in the camera menu and the GPS signal is acquired before recording.
