"Nikon D60 and Garmin GPS"

I am new to this form and find it very interesting.
I have a new D60 and love it. I would like to be able to connect my Garmin Etrex Legend C to it. I looked through some of the accessories and found a cord but it has a serial device for the GPS and mine has a small usb plug in the same as the camera. Could I just plug it in with a cord with two small USB ends? Thanks in advance for any and all replies
Bryan

Hi Bryan,

Welcome to Nikonians. Sorry but connecting 2 usb slave devices together doesn't work. Your only option to get GPS data into your photos is to take a waypoint every time you take a picture, then use software to insert the coordinates into your jpegs based on timestamp. There is software available so do some searching. Unfortunately no software works on raw files.

D200, D300, D2x, & D3 have an option to plug a GPS directly into the camera.

huh I've never heard of such software and that could come in handy with my field research. Do you happen to know a name of any of that software?

I don't use any such software myself (I never bothered with GPS tagging until after I got my D300) so for a software solution you'll have to do some searching.

I use gps photo which is free and can be downloaded from http://www.carto.net/projects/photoTools/gpsPhoto/

This program supports NEF raw files and JPG files.

I have my gps receiver on whilst shooting to record a tracklog, then I use gpsPhoto to add the gps data - it will even access the internet to find the town & country for the location and add it to the photo data.

I have been tagging all my pictures for the past year with it and then using jAlbum to put them on my website with google maps showing the picture location http://photo.wizgnome.com

Thanks very much for the information I will try and search for the software. I guess if I can't find any I will have to just take a photo of the gps and add to the photo later. Again thank you.
