I just purchased the Aokatec AK-G1s GPS receiver for my D700. I also purchased the AK-RS remote switch. I did review several GPS options for the D700 and I liked this one the best. It is compact and fits (plugs into) on the 10 pin connection on the body. The AK-G1s screws onto the connection so no need to worry about coming loose and falling off. It does work off the camera battery but the unit has an on/off switch to use when not in use. The AK_RS remote switch plugs into a small connector on the GPS unit for those times when you need to use a wired shutter release. I took a photo outside our house then loaded it into LR3. Looking at the EXIF data I saw the GPS data. If you click the little arrow next to the GPS data it opens Goggle Earth and displays the area where the photo was taken. The AK-G1s is small enough that I will leave it on the body as it is not in my way. The Aokatec company site is here http://www.aokatec.com/ and the company you can order from in the US (Semons, Inc) is here http://www.semsons.com/. By the way, this unit will work with several other bodies. Also you may need turn to on the GPS function in the menu of your camera.:smile:
