The GP-1 GPS Unit
The GP-1 GPS unit (available 
separately) can be connected to the 
camera’s accessory terminal using the 
cable supplied with the GP-1, allowing 
information on the camera’s current 
position to be recorded when 
photographs are taken. Turn the 
camera off before connecting the GP-1; 
for more information, see the GP-1 
When the camera establishes communication with the 
GP-1, a 
h icon will appear in the information display. 
Photo information for pictures taken while the 
icon is displayed will include an additional page of GPS 
data (0 121). GPS data are only recorded when the 
icon is displayed; confirm that the icon appears in the 
information display before shooting (a flashing icon indicates that the GP-1 is searching 
for a signal; pictures taken while the icon is flashing do not include GPS data). If no data 
are received from the GP-1 for two seconds, the 
h icon will clear from the display 
and the camera will stop recording GPS information.
❚❚Setup Menu Options
The GPS item in the setup menu contains the options listed below.
• Auto meter off: Choose whether the exposure meters turn off automatically when 
the GP-1 is attached. 
• Position: This item is only available if the GP-1 is connected, 
when it displays the current latitude, longitude, altitude, and 
Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) as reported by the GP-1.
Exposure meters turn off automatically if no operations are performed for the 
time given in Custom Setting c2 (Auto off timers; 0 157). This reduces the drain 
on the battery, but GPS data may not be recorded if the shutter-release button is 
pressed all the way down without pausing.
Exposure meters do not turn off while the GP-1 is connected; GPS data will always 
be recorded.
Coordinated Universal Time (UTC)
UTC data is provided by the GPS device and is independent of the camera clock.
