D5300 gps operation
5 months ago

I've only had my d5300 a few days, but I've noticed something strange with the operation of the GPS. \

\

When you turn they camera on, the GPS icon seems to flash for several minutes before going solid to indicate that it has a position fix. Sometimes I've also noticed that it's reverted back to flashing during shooting as well. I am in a large open area (today I was out in the country), so no buildings, no interference, nothing! But every time you turn it on it seems to take minutes to get the position fix again. \

\

When it does get the position then it is accurate. \

\

I also have a Nikon s9500 pocket camera that has gps in it, and that gets it within a few seconds. \

\

How have others found the gps in the d5300? Similar or different experience to mine?\

Thanks
