CNET Editors' Rating

The Good Small, unobtrusive design. Draws power from the camera itself.

The Bad Utility software not provided. Can't attach any other hotshoe accessories while the N100 is being used.

The Bottom Line The GP-N100 is the quiet achiever of interchangeable lens camera accessories, an unobtrusive GPS device for the Nikon 1 V1.

8.5 Overall

While many compact cameras have GPS capabilities on board, interchangeable lens cameras (ILCs) and SLRs are often left out. This compact unit lets photographers geotag their images taken on a Nikon 1 V1 camera.

Attaching via the proprietary hotshoe and drawing power from the camera itself, the N100 is incredibly small and takes up hardly any space at the top. There's an LED light at the top of the N100, which flashes red when obtaining a signal and green once a GPS signal has been gathered. The unit itself is available in a black or white finish to complement the colour of the V1.

On the side is a mini-USB plug, which can be used to connect the unit to a computer in order to obtain data used for Assisted GPS. You will need to download the (hard to find without a Google search) GP-N100 Utility software to use this feature. In the box is the GPS unit itself, a USB connection cord and a soft carrying case.
