Which GPS devices are supported by Nikon cameras?

Connecting a GPS device to a DSLR camera allows the location coordinates of where the image was captured to be recorded to the metadata of the image. Using this setup the latitude, longitude, altitude, UTC (universal time code) is recorded in the image EXIF data. Supported cameras will also record the compass heading when used with GPS units that support this feature.

Third Party GPS Devices using a PC Data Cable
Previous generation GPS devices such as the Garmin eTrex models require a cable connection using the Nikon MC-35 adapter and a 9-pin D-Sub PC Data Cable connection.
The camera can be connected to a GPS device conforming to the RS232 with NMEA0183 version 2.01 or 3.01 interface standard. To use cameras with GPS units set the GPS device to NMEA mode (4800 baud).
As these products have been tested by Nikon, we offer support for any connection issues relating to your Nikon product. However please contact the GPS device manufacturer for more specific information regarding accuracy, setup and compatibility of GPS devices.
Please ensure that the camera firmware is up to date as to ensure that all supported features function to specification.
