GPS on K-S1

Call me stupid but I don't understand what the GPS on my K-S1 is good for, or to be precise, what's the use of it. The settings in the menu don't allow me to set my exact location, the nearest location I set as my home location doesn't appear in EXIF, so... I'm puzzled...

The settings do something when you buy and attach the optional Pentax GPS module.

The WiFi controls are similar.

They only work if you buy the Pentax Flu card.

So, useless as it is. Thought so. Thanks for the clarification.
