Does what it says on the tin

Bird Brain UK, WEX

  • Summary: It works well but as with any GPS device sometimes it takes a while to pick up a GPS signal. You just plug it in and go.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Lightweight

Nikon still has issues with GPS

funkyaden, WEX
17 March 2013
  • Summary: Nikon really should have been integrating GPS into their DSLRs long before now. This is a very expensive accessory that is only marginally better value than the grossly overpriced MC-35 GPS Adapter cable that I used to use with a separate handheld GPS. Admittedly, it is a lot neater (and more practical) solution that the MC-35 combination but it's still clumsy for 2 main reasons, both related to the fact that it's an add on device.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Improves Product Function
  • Cons: Bulky, Not Durable

Great for travellers

  • Summary: Great gadget if you struggle to remember exactly where you took a particular shot, especially if you're shooting a lot in an unfamiliar place. Battery drain is an issue if you leave it powered up all the time (as I do) but it does mean you don't need to wait for it to get a satellite fix. I still find I get get a full day's shooting from one or two batteries on my D3. I bought an extra battery to be on the safe side. Indoor use is patchy, as you'd expect.

Best Available

  • Summary: I found this product so much fast and more robust than the cheaper versions. Also the positioning information was more accurate.The GP1-CL1 Strap Adapter was however not as robust or flexible for fitting. Mine broke when trying to fit to my Nikon strap because it was too small to fit the narrowest part of the strap. An alternative Metal clip or pin would be more effective.
  • Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Improves Product Function, Lightweight

Brilliant

  • Summary: THis is a fantastic accessory to have for your camera especially if you do a lot of travelling. I travel alot and so far its been great to see where I have taken some of my wildlife photos. You can also track your path on where you have been. Sadly Photoshop CS5 does not have any mapping capability however Nikons View NX 2 does which is a free download. It is a gadget but well worth having.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Improves Product Function, Lightweight
  • Cons: None

Endless Frustration from GPS

HexRover, WEX
2 August 2011
  • Summary: I try to use this GPS on the D90. After repeated attempts to startup from 'cold' resulting in endless delays in obtaining a position I discovered the connection to the D90 is very loose fitting. Each time the the power is lost for a fraction of a second the unit goes 'cold' again and requires another 45 seconds of being held in place till it will give a reading. I cannot recommend this unit for the D90. The first piece of Nikon equipment in 35 years I cannot recommend!!
  • Cons: Not Functional

Think is it really for you before buying

Alun, WEX

  • Summary: Adds about 5 seconds to the lag between seeing a picture and being able to take the picture with the coordinates in EXIF if you keep the camera in standby and can be up to 45 seconds if turning the camera on each time to take a picture

Does all that it says on the box.

Siouxah1, WEX
20 October 2010
  • Summary: NIKON GPS-1 GPS.Rather an intriguing gadget. I had no need of it but I love gadgets, and this foots the bill. If you travel abroad with your camera it is a must have.It requires no more than plugging it in to your camera with the supplied lead. It is then a matter of minutes for it to initially find the satellites. After the initial find it will lock on in seconds if camera is witched off for a while.

  • Conclusion: It is the perfect gift for the traveller. I am in love with this device - especially as I travel a lot and love the outdoors. I would recommended this any day.
  • Pros: works well, it is sometimes a little slow to locate itself in a new area, but overall it works pretty quickly and is very easy to use. It is such a great feature for travelling and beautiful landscape / outdoor pictures. And I thought it would drain my battery and it doesn't at all.
  • Cons: It is a lot of fun, besides the fact that there may be a 10 second delay sometimes, there is no real issue with this little device.
