      GPS-90 works well enough

      Comments about Promote Systems Promote GPS-90:

      Satellite aquisition is a little slow.. Sometimes the D600 / GPS-90 interface bootup gets hung at D600 powerup.... Fix: power cycle the D600 again, then the GPS-90 seems to grab the sats right away. Take time to sort out the D600 GPS interface setting options or battery life will be adversely compromised more than necessary.

        Comments about Promote Systems Promote GPS-90:

        I have a Nikon D90. This is the GPS that is supposed to be for this camera.The directions are easy to follow. But I could not get it to work for me. I live in a spot where there is lots of visible sky. Very few buildings high enough to block reception. It is supposed to show a blinking GPS when it trying to acquire a signal, and go to a non-blinking one when it has locked on. I was surprised how quickly it started blinking when I took it outside, and then how quickly it displayed the non-blinking GPS. But as soon as I would touch the shutter button, the GPS sign went off, no GPS data recorded, and the unit would have to be switched off and on again to restart the process. After repeating many times, it never worked.

          Ordered the Promoted GPS for my D90 to assist in documenting locations on a planned trip. Tested it as soon as it was received and found it easy to install and GPS connected quickly. In Peru it took a little longer to connect and a couple of times it did not connect.

            Easy installation.

            A bit of a pain having a wire from unit to plug. Somehow bluetooth would be great but my camera does not have bluetooth.

              I was taking a trip to rural areas of Poland and wanted to geo-tag my photos. This unit was much less expensive than the Nikon GPS unit for my Nikon D7100.
              The unit worked fine, once I figured out the proper camera settings. The product documentation was unclear, and it did not provide settings for my Nikon.
              Battery drain was substantial, but not a major problem.

                    Comments about Promote Systems Promote GPS-90:

                    I PURCHASED THIS PROMOTE GPS-90, FOR SEVERAL REASONS. FIRSTLY ITS SMALL FOOTPRINT, MOUNTS ON THE HOT SHOE OF YOUR CAMERA.
                    SECONDLY, ITS VERY ACCURATE DOWN TO THE SINGLE DEREE AND MJNUTE. I DO ALOT OF HIKING BACK TRAILS AND PATHS TO DO LANDSCAPE AND NATURE PHOTOGRAPHY, AND MY LOCATION IS IMPORTANT TO ME AT ALL TIMES FOR FUTURE EXCURSIONS,TRIPS.
                    THERE IS ONLY ONE MINOR DRAWBACK TO THE UNIT ITS POWER USAGE IS VERY DRAINING, IT IS BEST TO CARRY SEVERAL EXTRA BATTERIES WITH YOU AS TO THE UNIT DRAWS ALOT OF POWER FROM THE BATTERY.
                    IF YOU NEED A FLASH OR YOUR CAMERA NEEDS EXTRA LIGHTING YOU WILL FIND THAT HAVING THE UNIT ON YOUR HOT SHOE WILL DISABLE THE FLASH COMPLETLY. OTHER THAN THESE ITEMS I MENTIONED I REALLY LIKE THIS UNIT IS ONE TO HAVE.
                    THANK YOU,
                    MARK L ANDREWS

                    It took a little while to find the satellites, but then worked well. Only negative is that it takes up the hotshoe.
