K5 Firmware update

Hi everyone,
I uploaded the 1.10 firmware to my K5 and I'm wondering what use it is to me in Australia. The menu only shows countries in the northern hemisphere and none down South. Have I missed something or is there some other part I need to download to make the GPS system show us down South in the countries menu. Thanks for your help, if you can .
Cheers Darren

It won't work anyway without the GPS unit.
The list is just a set of presets of Pentax offices of which Australia, like many countries, has none.

Thanks Bill R, if I'd known that's all it was I wouldn't have worried about doing the update. I don't have a need for the GPS as the unit is way too expensive for the little good that it'll do.
Your explaining of this is greatly appreciated.
Cheers Darren
