File usage
Images can be geotagged using Map Utility with log files.
Log files can be converted to KMZ files using Map Utility.
Routes the camera has travelled can be viewed in Google Earth or other
map software by loading the KMZ files.

GPS Modes
Power switch set to <ON>
Location information (latitude, longitude, altitude, direction, and
UTC time) is automatically added to images Exif information when
taking pictures.
Power switch set to <LOG> Location information (latitude, longitude, altitude, and UTC time) is
(logging mode)
recorded on GPS Receiver GP-E2 at the specified interval.
Location information (latitude, longitude, altitude, direction, and UTC time)

Subject to change without notice
[1] L1 band: Frequency allocated for civilian use. Other frequencies include the L2 band (military use) and L5 band (highprecision civilian use)
[2] Not compatible with EOS 7D even with firmware update
[3] When memory is full, older data is overwritten with new data.
[4] Requires signal acquisition from four or more satellites
[5] Margin of error relative to UTC time.
High-precision time adjustment is only available for EOS-1D X
[6] Transmission via cable is used if GPS Receiver GP-E2 is attached to the hot shoe and connected by cable.
