O-GPS1 Sunrise & Sunset times?

Since buying a 645D I've bought an O-GPS1 for it an my K-5 (since it works with both), it struck me that it would be more useful if it could give approximate sunrise/sunset times for your location (some GPS receivers can do this). Are there any Pentax bodies that support this (or do the K-3ii & K-1 do so)? It would be really handy if you could predict when you'd need to be at your chosen location to catch them without having to use another app or almanac.

I do not think anything Pentax does this but the software above does. Along with an incredible number of other things. If you are trying to determine when and where to set up for sunrise / sunset or any kind of astrophotography do yourself a favor and spend a few pounds and get this for your phone / tablet.

I rarely (almost never) recommend anything to anyone but this is an exception. Simply amazing.
