To acquire GPS signals, bring the camera outdoors where the sky is
unobstructed and aim it upwards. Keep your hands and other objects
off the top of the camera.

GPS Acquisition Status
LCD panel
LCD monitor
GPS signal status is indicated by the <r> icon on the camera’s LCD
panel and LCD monitor.
• Constant <r> : Signal acquired
• Blinking <r> : Signal not acquired yet
When you shoot while the <r> mark is lit, the image will be
geotagged.
When [Internal GPS] is selected, the <r> mark is displayed on the
camera’s LCD panel even when the camera’s power is turned off
because signals from satellites are constantly received. Also, the number
of possible shots will be lower, since it will consume more battery to
receive satellite signals.
Status details can be checked as described in “Viewing GPS Information” (p.G-9).
G-7
Acquiring GPS Signals
Under favorable conditions, signal acquisition takes approx. 30-60
seconds after turning on the camera if radiowave conditions are good.
The antenna of the internal GPS is located at the front of the hot shoe.
GPS signals can be received even when an external flash is attached.
However, acquisition will slightly be weakened.
GPS signals can be received even when shooting with the camera
positioned vertically.
When traveling long distance, inaccurate information may be recorded.
Poor GPS Coverage
Location information may not be recorded, or inaccurate information may be
recorded where GPS signal coverage is poor, such as in the following
locations.
Indoors, underground, in tunnels or forests, near buildings or in valleys.
Near high-voltage power lines or mobile phones operating on the
1.5 GHz band.
When traveling through different environments.
Even in other locations, satellite movement may interfere with
geotagging and cause missing or inaccurate location information. The
information may also indicate that the camera has been used in a
different location, even if you are shooting at the same place.

Location Information Logs
Location information is recorded at regular intervals along the route the
camera traveled, as shown in [Position update timing] in the table
below. Daily logs are saved on the camera’s internal memory. The
number of days for which you can store logs depends on the positioning
interval you specify in [Position update timing] (p.G-11).

Log file names consist of date and number (e.g.2012103100). Files
are created per day. When the time zone is changed, a different file
is created.
Log files stored on the internal memory can be transferred to a card
(p.G-15).
When the camera’s internal memory becomes full, the oldest log
files are overwritten with new information, one by one.

Logging the Route Traveled
Importing log files to a computer
You can import log files to a computer using the provided software EOS
Utility, or by transferring the log data to a card at first. Routes travelled
will be displayed on a virtual map when you open the log files imported
to the computer with the Map Utility software (p.G-18).
Importing using the provided software
Log files can be imported to a computer using the provided software
EOS Utility, via the provided interface cable connecting the camera and
the computer. For details, refer to the EOS Utility Instruction Manual
PDF on the DVD-ROM.
Importing by transferring the log data to a card
Set [GPS logger] to [Transfer log
data to card] to transfer the log files
stored on the internal memory to a
card. After the data is transferred to
the card, log files on the internal
memory are deleted.
The log files imported to the card will
be stored in the “GPS” folder in the
“MISC” folder. The extension is
“.LOG”.
Set [GPS logger] to [Delete log data]
to completely delete the log data
stored on the internal memory.
Deleting data may take approx. one
minute.
G-15
Logging the Route Traveled
When carrying the camera in a bag or suitcase as you travel, make sure
the camera faces upward and nothing is on top of it.
Set the camera time and date as accurately as possible. Also, set
appropriate time zone and daylight saving time for the shooting location.
When using the Map Utility software, images are geotagged by
comparing image date/time tags to logged date and time information. An
incorrect date and time setting may prevent accurate geotagging.
Since location information, date, and time are constantly recorded, the
battery is consumed even when the camera is turned off. Therefore, the
battery level may already be low when the camera is used. Charge the
battery when necessary or prepare a charged spare battery (sold
separately).
When you shoot while using the GPS logging function, images taken will
be geotagged. The recorded location information can be viewed on a
virtual map on a computer using the Map Utility software.
It is also possible to add location information at a later time to images
shot by other EOS cameras and Canon compact digital cameras
travelled with this camera using the Map Utility software. This function is
applicable to JPEG and RAW images (file extension: CR2).
Movie files can also be geotagged this way at a later time, when using
cameras that display [GPS device settings] in the menu (except with
the EOS 7D).

GPS Precautions
Keep the following points in mind when using the GPS function.
In certain countries and regions, the use of GPS may be restricted.
Therefore, be sure to use GPS in accordance with the laws and
regulations of your country or region. Be particularly careful when
traveling outside your home country.
Be careful about using GPS functions where the operation of
electronic devices is restricted.
Others may be able to locate or identify you by using location data in
your geotagged pictures or movies. Be careful when sharing these
geotagged images, movies or GPS log files with others, such as
when posting them online where many people can view them.
GPS signal reception may take a longer time in some cases.
