I've played with the settings a bit - mostly to turn on the VF grid, filenaming, and viewer settings, but any recommendations for this one?

You said you were going on vacation?

Remenber to turn GPS on and download the A-GPS file from Nikons website:

and put on a SD-card and upload to camera.

Thanks, already done that. Haven’t got it to find gps signal yet though.


It may take a while to initialize the first time. Make sure you're outdoors with an open view of the sky.

Aye, I realise that.

Check the reviews of how using the GPS effects the camera's battery life. Maybe you don't want to use GPS while on vacation.

Yeah, noted that too. I did own a Panasonic compact with it once, I generally didn’t use gps. If I did, it was just on the first few photos to log the location.
