❚❚Setup Menu Options
The [GPS] item in the setup menu contains the options listed 
below.
• [Auto meter off]: Choose whether or not the exposure meters will 
turn off automatically when a GPS unit is attached. 
• [Position]: This item is only available if a GPS device is connected, 
when it displays the current latitude, longitude, altitude, 
Coordinated Universal Time (UTC), and heading (if supported) as 
reported by the GPS device.
A
Heading
The heading is only recorded if the GPS device is 
equipped with a digital compass (note that the 
GP-1 is not equipped with a compass).  Keep the 
GPS device pointing in the same direction as the 
lens and at least 20cm (8 in.) from the camera.
A
Coordinated Universal Time (UTC)
UTC data is provided by the GPS device and is independent of the camera 
clock.
Option
Description
Enable
(default)
Exposure meters will turn off automatically if no operations 
are performed for the period specified in Custom Setting c2 
([Auto meter-off delay]). This reduces the drain on the 
battery but may prevent GPS data from being recorded if 
the shutter-release button is pressed all the way down 
without pausing.
Disable
Exposure meters will not turn off while a GPS unit is 
connected; GPS data will always be recorded.
