There are many posters that do not see the need to include this feature or see any any reason to GPS tag photos.

You can always create a track file with an external GPS and add the GPS data in post processing.

Surely a combination of reasons:

- positioning of the lowest model of camera

- eliminates some amount of cost, important on the lowest price model

- simplicity of operation

- likely Nikon felt that this feature might not appeal to the majority of d3000 buyers

It seems that geotagging will to be a must in the future for all digital cameras and that will not cost any extra payment for the buyer. Nikon has always been the leading in the field. So I do not understand why D3000 has no gps too.

My Easytagger can do the post processing too. But I never trouble myself to do that since it can geotag directly.

The D3000 is also a generation old and has been superseded by the D3100.
