Next best to Built in GPS

Finished my GPS project to:

1. Minimize cables and cable length.
2. Reduce size.
3. Eliminate multiple connections.
4. Mount GPS Unit onto camera.

Selected a Garmin GPS 18 with wire leads. Used an old hotshoe from an old flash unit (all plastic).

Shows the Garmin Unit, Nikon MC-35 cable,

Shows the completed unit attached to a D2x.

Power is through the MC-35 which with a simple modification provides +5v for the GPS Unit.

Thought others might be interested.
