Disclaimer: I didn't buy this through Amazon. The Amazon vendors are currently charging $99 for this device. The manufacturer sells it for $65 and I bought mine for $56 (including postage).

This (when combined with a bluetooth GPS receiver) replaces the GP-1 GPS add-on from Nikon, adding GPS coordinates to each photograph.
The Nikon device is something that they should be truly ashamed of. It uses an older chipset which is insensitive (won't work indoors, may not work in wooded or city areas), can take up to 30 minutes to lock, and for this, they want $265. Most resellers have it priced closer to $200, but for something that is worth maybe $50 and probably costs less than $5, its an insult to intelligence rather than a useful product.

Oh, and it ties up the flash-shoe too.

But back to the AK-N7000. It is a very small device, powered by the camera, no external controls, just plug it in, and go.

My GPS receiver was a XGPS150A from Dual Electronics. Although not listed in the tested GPS receivers on the manufacturers website, it did appear to conform to the specifications required.

When I received the AK-N7000 I followed the instructions: Turn on GPS receiver, plug AK-N7000 into camera, turn on camera and wait for it to pair.

It never did pair.

The Nikon D7000 doesn't report the presence of a GPS device unless that device actually sends data, so I had no way of knowing if there was a problem with my camera, the AK-N7000 or my GPS receiver.

I sent emails to the vendor I purchased from and to the manufacturer.
Both were very responsive and very helpful The manufacturer incredibly so. They went out and purchased a XGPS150 receiver to test.

After reading the harsh reviews of the other devices, I thought I would give this one a try.

The GPS Adapter plugs in to the camera and picks up a blue tooth signal from the GPS device. There are several that you can use - my choice is the DeLorme Earthmate BT-20 - I can turn it on at the start of the day and drop it in my pocket and forget about it.

The major advantages of this device are
1) that it gives coordinates nearly instantly after you turn it on once the GPS is running.
2) very minimal power drian (though you don't want to leave it plugged in over night)
3) It is supposed to latch the last coordinates if you take it inside shooting. I haven't had a chance to test that yet.
4) Comes with a little retainer cable that keeps the adapter from getting lost. A nice deisgn that makes it easy to tie the adapter to the strap. Don't forget to use it.

The disadvantages are:
1) It's Nikon's fault, but the left side of the camera body is an awkward place to plug something in. It's not as bad as I thought it would be, but I wish they had put the plug on the front like they did on the D300
2) the adapter is just a little too tight. It seems to loosen up with use, but still...

This one I've only used once on the road, but I also have one for my D300 that I've used on a couple of trips. Both devices have worked very well and very dependably.

I wanted to be able to geotag the photos I take with my D5200, but I didn't want to spend hundreds of $$. So I decided to give this a shot. It worked much better than I expected it to.

Pros - Connects to my Qstarz BT-Q1000XT without a problem. Much cheaper than most other Nikon GPS solutions. Doesn't use the shoe connector so the pop-up flash can still be used.

Cons - It blocks the LCD screen from rotating when you have the display extended out to the side. After managing to insert the thread that came with it into the oddly shaped hole, I tied it to the camera strap -- where it now dangles and bops around when I'm not using it. I need to find a better way to attach it so that (a) I won't lose it and (b) I can quickly get it connected to the GPS port but (c) it will stay out of the way when I don't need it. Suggestions?

I use this on my D7000 with a BT-Q818XT: Qstarz BT-Q818XT 10Hz Bluetooth GPS Receiver and it seems to work well except for one small problem: I don't get geotagging on about 5% of my photos. Not a huge problem since the other photos have the location set, so I know where I was. I don't know if this is an issue with the camera, adapter or GPS receiver. Another annoyance, and this is more for the camera, is that this sticks out the side when it is plugged in. It seems to be pretty securely attached, but the little door on the connection ports is open and loose. I wish there was a solution to lock all this down. Maybe tape :-)

Overall I am happy with the product and it does what I want: geotag my photos.

Simply put it works just great. It sends a signal to my receiver as far as 30 feet or more.
