Product Reviews for Sony GPS ADD-ON FOR MOST SONY
from Toronto, Ontario, Canada. on 10/6/2011
Easy to set-up and use.
Body feels cheap and plasticy, fragile.
Bought this before going to Peru to hike the Inka Trail to Machupicchu (which was absolutely, amazing and awesome - thanks to G Adventures).

Easy to use, works for multiple cameras
must remember to sync times
I have owned this for about a year and use it whenever I am taking photos. Because it supports SD and MSduo cards, we use it for all our cameras. And when we go on vacation we can add GPS info to everyone's photos as long as we sync the camera times.
great product, several flaws
from Hollis, NH on 11/14/2010
on-off button failed utterly
I've owned and use this product for over a year, recommending it to my students and dozens of field professionals. The on-off button is seriously mis-designed, as it is off-center from the pcb switch it is supposed to activate. Last week it broke, so the unit was inoperable. Solution: remove plastic button, cover hole with tape. To turn on or off, peel back tape and use pencil to activate the switch. Works great.
OVER ALL I LIKE IT, DOES WELL
from Undisclosed on 8/22/2010
Handy, SHORT SWEET TO THE POINT TECH. LOTS OF STORAGE SPACE ON UNIT FOR THE LOGS., Small
BATT LIFE SEEMS TO GET EATEN UP QUICK AFTER JUST FEW USES, MAYBE 3 OR 4 HRS OF USE AT A TIME .TAKE SPARES.
I LIKE THE UNIT OVER ALL. DOES THE JOB I AM WANTING TO BE DONE. SOFTEWARE IS NICE ALSO, EASY TO USE AND UPDATE ITEMS. NICE ON TRIPS TO SEE WHERE U HAVE BEEN AND ALSO PUT PIC'S THERE. THE BACK LID OVER TIME I KNOW WILL NOT CLOSE RIGHT AFTER MANY OPENINGS. AFTER RESEARCHING MANY MINI ITEMS LIKE THIS, FOR THE MONEY IT IS THE BEST I THINK. IF U WANT A GOOD LITTLE UNIT. BUY I T U WILL BE HAPPY. JIM
Overall It Works could be better.

accurate., Lightweight, Small
Difficult to see when on, Have to remove cover to much
Overall it works and provides accurate data. Small enough to attach to your camera strap and not notice the added weight. I have used it several times now and enjoy seeing my pictures on the map. The down side is difficult to know when it is on. The screen is black and white and shuts off to save power quickly. So twice now I believed it to be on and when I was done, discovered it was not. I would suggest adding a small multi colerd LED to inform user when on, Satellite tracking could be a different color. The provided case makes it even more difficult to see also. I do not like having to remove the cover each time to insert the data card. I am afraid over time it will break. Overall it is still a great tool I would recommend it to others. I just beleive a few minor changes could be made to make it even better.
