Lightroom CC classic 8.1 wont import GPS data from photo's. I have taken Cell phone photo's and my 7D Mark II GPS photo's.  Using Canon software GPS data is displayed. But LR CC Classic 8.1 does not show GPS data in Meta File. And nor did 8.0 before update.  it has in the past but now it does not.  Thoughts?  Running Windows 10 1809  Build 17764.168 Latest updates. Even if I copy picutres from Cell phone and then import nothing.

Ronald, would it be possible to share an image that was showing the GPS data earlier, and now stopped showing the same? Could you also please confirm whether there are any import presets that are getting applied? 

Thanks for your help in investigating this issue.

[edited: you could send the image to gopinath-at-adobe-dot-com]

I remove my import preset and did a resync and the GPS data appeared? I must have a option in there active?

You almost certainly have the GPS field checked but blank in the metadata preset. Blank but checked clears any existing metadata.
