Cost, size, and weight? According to a BBC interview with one of the people who invented GPS, good GPS chips now cost about $1 due to their inclusion in millions of smart phones - I'd guess the cost of wi-fi chips has similarly dropped. They are pretty small too

Now how much are Nikon charging for their external "dongles"?

Yes, given the cost of the parts, what they are getting for these must add up.
