Thanks for the input.

When you turn off the camera, does the GPS turn off too? In other words, will I have to wait for it to get a lock before I can snap again after switching the camera on??? Or does it keep the lock, as long as it is still connected???

I have this unit and it works well when it gets a signal and that's probably the biggest issue - it can be slow to pick up the satellites. I seem to remember reading about that before I got it. Strangely enough when I was in Australia in April/May it seemed very quick, I'm not sure why, but much quicker to find my location than I remember on my last holiday a few months before.

as for it working in doors I'd say there is no chance of that happening based on my past experience.
