O-GPS1 vs. Nikon's GP-1A

It isn't often that we can say we had something first and better from Pentax than from Nikon (at any price).

We can with the O-GPS1!

The Nikon Unit is $299 and the O-GPS1 is $199!

The Nikon unit will only Geotag the image and our unit will do the following:
  • Geotag your images for location information on popular photo-sharing websites
  • Chart the progress of a hike, bike or boating trip with interval position tracking
  • Supports terrestrial-based WAAS for highly accurate positioning
  • Electronic Compass function assists while hiking or camping
  • Astrotracking!

I had to look up WAAS. It provides increased accuracy, which I would imagine is helpful for serious navigation. Maybe not so important for just geotagging alone.

Nkion users will just have to watch where they step, while they are out shooting on the trail.
