    Unleashed Dx000 Bluetooth Module is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best GeoTagging solution on the camera end This might look like an expensive little attachment at 1st glance, but it's well worth the investment. I went through three shoe mount GPS devices and at least 2 cables for each of those three devices. - The cables would get barely bumped and therefore ruined. - The modules would not sync up quick, were crazy to pair up and so forth. These little Unleashed Dx000's are WONDERFUL! (I just had the 1st one I bought stop working after oh 10,000 pictures. What did it for me, my kayak swamped and rolled and it got a little wet.) These modules pair right up and lock on right away. They are barely noticeable when plugged in, do not take up hot shoe, don't have a very fragile cable in the way, etc. I've made a pair up video on YouTube, the lesson learned there was to get away from all the other BlueTooth devices. My replacement module paired up 1st try and works as good as the 1st one did for all those great moments.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best GPS system for Nikon's DSLR cameras I have two Dx000 Bluetooth modules with Nikon D5100 & D5300. Although the Nikon D5300 have an A-GPS built-in, the Unleashed Dx000 module combined with a Holux or Bad Elf Bluetooth GPS receiver is much more accurate, fast and simply to use. No cables on the side of the camera and no need to download and update the A-GPS every two weeks. I attach the GPS receiver to the BlackRapid strap and turn it on. Once the connection is made between satellites, the GPS receiver and the Dx000 module, the GPS symbol appears on the camera. When you turn the camera off, and back on, there is almost NO WAITING TIME to get the coordinates, because the GPS receiver is still on. The GPS coordinates are stored by the camera into the JPG files. I use Adobe Photoshop Elements 13 to visualize my pictures locations on Google Map. The only problem when installing the Unleashed Dx000 module is the need to remove the rubber connector cover. With Nikon D5100 and D5300 and some other DX models, we just have to unsnap the rubber cover (non-destructive). But for some FX camera models, it can be different. The Foolography web site provides detailed information on compatibility and the best way to install the Dx000 module. For maximum protection and peace of mind, I made a new cover with some Oatey Fix-it Stick all-purpose bonding putty. What we need to do is to unsnap the rubber cover, put scotch tape on the camera's connectors (but not on the accessory connector for GPS module) and also on the Dx000 female connector, carefully put vaseline on the scotch tape and on the Dx000 Bluetooth module (don't put vaseline on the Dx000 male connector), plug in the Dx000 module on the camera, and put the bonding putty between the Dx000 and the camera and also on the other connectors (covered with scotch tape). After few minutes, the putty will harden. Carefully remove the putty cover and the Dx000 module together, then remove the Dx000 module from the putty cover. Remove all the scotch tapes and vaseline on the camera and on the Dx000 module. With a knife, cut undesirable thin parts of the new cover. Put the new cover on the camera and snap the Dx000 module in. If it's too tight, make adjustments on the new cover with the knife. When it fits perfectly, take a Staedtler permanent pen to put a black color on the visible part of the new cover. The new cover will protect all the connections of the camera and the Dx000 module from rain, dust, and it's much more shock resistant.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Never Worked.... Went through the setup guide on my D750 and was never able to successfully obtain GPS data from the Bad Elf GPS Pro. Also, the design of this plugin causes the device to be pushed painfully hard by the rubber dust cover on the port. The device should be reversed so that the dust cover isn't interfering with the installation. I was really excited to have GPS tagging on my D750...
