When GPS signal reception is not possible indoors or in other places 
going outside where there is an unobstructed view of the sky. Hold the 
) and point the GPS antenna up at the sky.
[ ] will normally be displayed within a few minutes when the camera is 
used in areas with ample GPS coverage, such as outdoor areas with an 
unobstructed view of the sky. If [ ] is not displayed, move to an area 
without obstructions (such as buildings) between the camera and GPS 
satellites and wait a few minutes until it appears.
Places With Poor GPS Coverage
Location information may not be recorded, or inaccurate information may 
be recorded where GPS signal coverage is poor, such as in the following 
places.
●Indoors ●underground ●near buildings or in valleys ●in tunnels or 
forests ●near high-voltage power lines or mobile phones operating on the 
1.5 GHz band ●inside a bag or suitcase ●under water (when the camera 
)) ●when traveling across 
great distances ●when traveling through different environments
Even in other places, GPS satellite movement may interfere with 
geotagging and cause missing or inaccurate location information, or the 
information may indicate that the camera has been used elsewhere even 
if it has not.
Time Required to Receive a GPS Signal
GPS signal reception may take longer after battery replacement, or when 
you have not used GPS functions for some time.
You can shorten the time required to receive a GPS signal by using Wi-Fi 
to store Assisted GPS data (information on the position of GPS satellites) 
).
