Can't make GPS work on D850

"This option is not available at current settings or in the camera's current state."

How wonderfully unhelpful!!

I just received my 2nd Dawn Tech GPS Eco ProFessional 2 (with Digital Compass) unit. (I lost the first one a few days after I received it.)

I cannot get it to work. It locks on the the GPS satellites and I have a steady green light. But when I go to the "Location Data" I get the dreaded "This option is not available at current settings or in the camera's current state." message. My previous GPS worked during the few days that I had it.

There are too many settings to randomly vary to find out which are the offending ones, but I have tried quite a few. The Nikon manual is of no hlep. (Now there is a surprise!) But Thom Hogan's guide is of no help either, and internet search has been futile.

I don't know if this problem is unique to the Dawn Tech GPS (or my particular unit) or a general one.

Can anybody help?
