Easy to Use




Begin to use nGPS by going through three simple steps!



nGPS is equipped with a standard hot shoe. Insert it in the direction as shown in the figure.


Insert the cable for 10-pin remote terminals CD-01 into the connection port of data.


Align the triangle arrow mark on 10-pin remote terminals CD-01 to the dot mark on the camera.








Turn on your camera.
Push the control switch on your nGPS from "OFF" to "ON". The Satellite Status LED blinks.


At the same time, a GPS icon starts to blink on the LCD display on top of the camera.


Wait until the Satellite Status LED turns solid in an outdoor environment.
If the GPS icon on the unit is on, all pictures you take will be logged with GPS position information.

Select "Setup > GPS > Position" on your camera to view the current latitude, longitude, elevation, and UTC.


Using ViewNX software, you may click "GeoTag" icon to position your picture on a map and view abundant geographical information.
You may also use the popular Google Earth, iPhoto, Panoramio, Flickr, Picasa or other software to play back or share the GPS-tagged photos with friends.



Human Design




nGPS employs a low-power, highly sensitive chipset with 66 parallel channels. With a positioning precision of up to 3 meters and 35s/1s (average) for cold start * and hot start respectively, it enables quick and precise positioning even in unfavorable environments.
* The test environment is a place with relatively open view to the sky.

The power switch on nGPS is independent from the power switch on your camera. If you will not use the camera for a short time period, you may turn off the camera and leave nGPS on. Thus, nGPS remains in the positioning status so that it can immediately obtain position information and data the next time you turn on the camera. This allows you quickly capture images.

Including the Remote Cord RC-01 in the standard version, you can use the nGPS and remote cord at the same time.
