D7500 gps data not being enbedded on picture file

I have just brought a D7500, generally very pleased. Problem is the location data which is downloaded from a smart device (camera location menu shows lat, long, altitude) does not get embedded on the picture file. All appropriate menu items have been activated.

I also notice the location is updated only every 5 mins (UTC time only changes every 5 mins) so unless location is updated say every 30 secs location data would be very misleading even if it worked.

The satellite icon does not appear on the screen which I believe would be a prerequisite of location data being enbedded.

I have extensively researched snapbridge (definitely using latest version) and can see no menu to control frequency of download. I know location data on smart device is available regularly enough for a good fix.

Are Nikon press boys promising something the camera cannot deliver, namely enbedded gps data on the Picture file via a smart device/snapbridge.

Anyone got this feature to work. If not I will have to go back to using a .gpx file producing tracker programme and synchronise time/location in LR. Had hoped to take out this step on my work flow.
