I'm using it to connect to a D750, and in that role it does the job. Only time will tell if it survives - since it connects to the body in a manner where any stress will either damage the cable or the port on the camera. Upon simple inspection I'd prefer that it was designed to sit flush, against the body. Damage can be avoided by unplugging the cable each time the camera is not in active use - but that may prove inconvenient for some.
After bouncing around in my truck for 50k miles while traversing North America, the cable got crimped over and the GP-1 wouldn't function. It would be really helpful if the cable had a 90 degree angle at the camera end. That's where it gets pinched on my D5000 and D7000 (and it appears the same on D5100, D5200, D7100 and D600). The D800 cable is different with a built right angle.
This cable is a replacement for the original that came with the GP-1. As a piece of equipment it is nothing less than perfect. My complaint is about the high price for a small cable. I use it to connect the GPS unit to my D90. On my D3X I use the other cable supplied. I had to buy this cable because the original had its wires broken. This was caused by my practice of placing the camera in my bag with the GPS mounted on it and the cable connected. No, I was not lazy, the camera is kept on with the GPS connected, so I do not need to wait till it finds the position for each shot I take. This useful equipment should be better designed, with this kind of extensive use in mind. Better, I now choose cameras with the GPS inside.
