Geotagging support in K-5

I am aware that there is no in-built geotagging support in k-5, however any interface added for Geotagging addons like Nikon?

I'm not aware of what kind of addons Nikon has, but there are some rather more expensive options like the hotshoe mounted geotaggers. This one is on Amazon for $155US.

If you browse the threads where Falk (falconeye) was giving his initial thoughts of the K-5 from Photokina, he was asked about GPS data in his images. This led to some side discussion of the topic in the thread and I believe people were discussing relatively cheap GPS receivers that didn't communicate directly with the camera, but synced with the photos after upload to pc based on EXIF data. If you can't find it, I'll take a look later today when I have more time.

The newest eye fi cards give you geotagging but only if you are in range of a wi-fi hotspot, so not a great deal of use outside cities.
