I bought my 6D whilst living in NE China. It does not have GPS but does have Wifi. The model ID is noted on the box as 6D(W) and there is no GPS logo on the box. In the shop they said that in China the camera does not have GPS .. only (grey) imports from HongKong have it and these will not carry any warantee in China. I asked why no GPS.. they said 'no GPS'... (no clear reason). I asked my local Chinese friends (technical engineering type people) they joked that the government do not like GPS on Japanese cameras as they worry about spying ! This was said half jokingly but I do wonder...
