There's also a built-in electronic compass that can accurately detect the cardinal direction in which the photographer is facing - even if the EOS 5D Mark III and EOS-1D X are held vertically, the GP-E2 can still record the proper positioning from when it is in a normal position.
*The EOS 5D Mark III and EOS 7D require a firmware upgrade to be compatible with the GPS Receiver GP-E2, which will be available soon. †When the EOS 7D is used with the GP-E2 the following restrictions will apply: a) geotagging function will not work for movies while recording; b) geotagging features will not work for movies when using the Map Utility; c) electronic compass information and automatic time setting is not available; d) transmission via the hot shoe is not possible.
