Camera location information (latitude, longitude, and elevation) based on 
acquired GPS signals can be added to the still images and movies you shoot, 
or this information can be logged separately. In addition to geotagging, the 
camera clock can be updated automatically.
Before using GPS functions, make sure the date, time, and local time zone 
on the camera are set correctly, as described in “Setting the Date and Time” 
(p. 17)
.
GPS: Global Positioning System
z
Use the camera outside, where there is an 
unobstructed view of the sky. (GPS functions 
will not work correctly indoors or in other 
areas away from GPS coverage (p. 45).)
z
Hold the camera correctly, as shown, for 
easier GPS signal reception.
z
Keep your fingers or other objects off the 
GPS antenna.
For better GPS signal reception, try to keep the GPS antenna pointing up, 
toward the sky. When carrying the camera in a bag, put it in the bag with the 
GPS antenna pointing up, and try to put the camera in an outer section of bag.
Using GPS Function
When using GPS functions, keep the following points in mind.
In certain countries and regions, the use of GPS may be restricted. 
Therefore, be sure to use GPS in accordance with the laws and 
regulations of your country or region. Be particularly careful when 
traveling outside your home country.
Be careful about using GPS features where the operation of electronic 
devices is restricted, because the camera will receive GPS signals.
Others may be able to locate or identify you by using location data in 
your geotagged still images or movies. Be careful when sharing these 
images or GPS log files with others, as when posting images online 
where many others can view them.
