Maybe search a bit further! You can have the coordinates on your TX, or on the OSD on your video feed.

On your OSD video feed:

On your TX:
https://oscarliang.com/log-gps-coordinates-taranis/

or

Taranis Open Tx GPS Logging Setup (8 min 48 sec)


or

Tired of loosing your quads?- GPS logging script for Taranis X-Lite / qx7 (lua) (1 min 49 sec)


QED!

They are video for betaflight, I wear NAZA. Nor do I get the readings in the taranis of the sensors, only rss and battery.
In the option "discover new sensors" of the Taranis, do not discover any new sensors, or connecting the drone.
I will investigate a little more your second link that seems to have a lot of information.
am i missing any connection on the x8r ??

DJI is pretty much a "closed architecture" that does not lend it self well to providing telemetry back to your radio.

If you really want to get telemetry, switch over to a Pixhawk and then you can get telemetry using either Craft & Theory Flight Deck, or Yaapu Telemetry

How do you expect to get Telemetry on the Taranis when you have no connection to the Sport on the receiver?

Have a look at this pile-o-crap as one way to get it working Ditch the Naza.

Full telemetry from NAZA to FrSky X8R or X6R to Taranis (13 min 50 sec)

+1. Ditch the NAZA.

With a Pixhawk you need ONE connection between the flight controller and the receiver and some LUA scripts on the radio to get this:

my English is very bad (almost as bad as the Google translator). I see a big mess of connections. I just need my receiver to save the coordinates in case the drone had an accident. I have to connect the Smart Port somewhere. or it's not possible directly

may be an option, I'm going to find out about it. change naza would be expensive and time consuming. my last option would be a GPS tracker

You could easily use one of these. It connects to the Sport of the Receiver and is independent of the Flight Controller.
