"GPS-1 Green light"


Redmond, US
          

I am in the middle of a vacation & noticed no GPS data when I was reviewing a days shooting.
The green light is constant on the GP-1 & when I check in the GPS menu the Position is greyed out. Pressing ok gets the message "This option is not available with current settings". The settings have not changed since it was working perfectly.
Is this perhaps Nikon speak for even with a green light there are not enough satellites?
There is nothing strange with my settings I'm a Raw, A priority shooter.

It's a D7000 BTW.

Thnx for any input.

In the interest of the same thing happening to someone else - now I am back home from vacation with over 3k of shots without GPS data I have found the problem. The cable into the GP-1 was not properly seated!

Since the camera reported the error that GPS position " was not available with current settings" AND the green light was on I assumed it was a setting I had changed so never thought to check the cable was properly seated.
Why some engineer thought that error report made sense I have no idea but typical NIkon.
