Summary: I bought the MC-35 to attach to my D-200 for a trip to Africa two summers ago. It worked very well and I would have given it five stars. However, after 10 days in the mountains and 5 days on a safari, the cord on the Nikon end started to fray and come apart. It's impossible to find duct tape out in the middle of the savanna. The price of these things has come down considerably so they are actually a pretty good deal.
The description doesn't mention it won't work on certain Nikon Digital SLRs

Summary: Just bought a D90 and ordered this cable from Adorama. The package was found open inside the shipping envelope. Apparently, the D90 doesn't work with this cable due to a different style connector on the camera body. It would have saved me a great deal of money of Adorama had simply listed the compatible cameras rather than just "Nikon Digital SLR Cameras.
Summary: I purchased this cord adapter for use on my Nikon D200 so I could connect a GPS unit to it. It woks well, mates properly to the connector that is also needed from the GPS. It is too bad that one cable could not do this whole task, but, maybe this is all tied up with different companies making their own rules.
Summary: Cord works as advertised, providing half the interface to a Garmin GPS but it has several disconcerting characteristics 1. Cord adapts compatible Nikon SLRs to GPs units so that GPS data can be recorded in EXIF files. However the cord termininates in an RS 232 connector and a 2nd cord with RS-232 to Garmin interface is required for the GPS data transfer to occur. A single cord with Nikon to Garmin connectors would be much more convenient 2.
Summary: It works as advertised, but [$] (not including the GPS receiver itself) for a cable is excessive, even by Nikon's standards, and the combination is very clunky (you have to find a way to secure the dangling GPS).The Geopic II, on the other hand, is a compact all-in-one solution that fits neatly on the flash hot-shoe.
Summary: If you shoot off the beaten path, you need to know where that great shot was taken and, if you want to find that spot again, you need this cable to connect your GPS to your camera. Invaluable.
Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Improves Product Function, Lightweight
