I have no trouble using the GP-E2-GPS with my 70D hot shoe.

In my experience, it sort of works as a standalone, but it uses an odd GPS format that most mapping software can't interpret. You're probably better off with a more generic unit.

With the optional GPS Receiver GP-E2 attached to the hot shoe or the digital terminal, the EOS Rebel SL1 can record location, including latitude, longitude and altitude, and has the ability to track the trajectory of movement with its logging function. An electric compass records the camera's orientation during each shot, and world time information is recorded through GPS syncing.

If the GP-E2 is synced to the satellites and you can see the active data in the menu named GPS, it will embed the data into each photo file. When you upload your photos into iPhoto, you will see dropped pins on the map where the photos were taken... I just came back from Europe vacation and it worked beautifully! It won't work too well for indoor photos though since the satellite signals are weak... Bob

A simple app for your smartphone will address your needs with a much better UI. That said, he unit can act as a stand alone GPS device. You will record a large number of lat/long coordinates that eventually will turn into points on a map. That is achieved by eating the unit in Log mode. My preferred solution, though, consists in ensuring each photo or video is properly geo tagged. That means storing lat/long, elevation, orientation and other params as exif data points.

It can work without the hot shoe. That is how I use it with my Rebel T3i. I just hang it from a carabiner on my backpack. Make sure your time stamp is correct with GMT and then the pictures will sync by the time stamp using the included software. Fiddly but it works.

My unit manual says it will work with any Canon camera that has "GPS Device Settings" listed in the cameras setup menu. Unfortunately, it started with the T4i camera... I'm afraid it may not work...at least not in the Hot Shoe....
