Re: GPS tagging in China

I just called my dealer in Shanghai and they carried only the Chinese version without GPS, and, surprsingly, they could not get the international version with GPS. The grey market version was also without GPS they claimed.

Neither did they have the GPS unit for the 5D and other models; it was not in high demand and difficult to get.

Just walked into a store in Urumqi in Xinjiang province, they had (or could get) both; the GPS-version was cheaper but came without warranty. This is surprising too, here, if anywhere, would use of GPS be considered sensitive while also being relatively more useful than in, say, Shanghai becasue of the unique scenery and the vast but sparsely populated territory of Xinjiang.
