"Which GPS add-on would you buy?"

I'm going to pickup the D7000, but I want to make sure each shot is geotagged. I'm not happy about the idea of a tethered solution either from Nikon or one like EasyTag.

So I'm looking at the GISTEQ PhotoTrackr Plus (http://www.gisteq.com/phototrackr/phototrackr-plus-n.php)

or the Foolography Unleashed module
(http://www.foolography.com/products/unleashed-dx000/)

Although, the Unleashed module requires a separate GPS receiver (big down side)

Which do you recommend?

From what I see both of them require a separate GPS receiver... it then transmits the data to the receiver on the camera..

I currently use the Solemata GPS receiver (For the last 1.5 years) and have been extremely happy with it. http://www.solmeta.com/dede/index.html

I looked at the Solemata, but wasn't sure about the $249 price. Aside from the LCD screen on it, any reason to get the Pro over the N1 and N2?

If I get a tethered device, how about the Solemata vs. the EasyTag?

Well, according to this review

http://terrywhite.com/techblog/archives/5342

He says one nice thing about the Pro is the LCD shows you that you actually are receiving a GPS fix. Other than that, he says it's more durable. I've heard before the N2 and N1 are not very rugged, is this your experience?

The Pro is so expensive...I really have to find a good couple reasons. All of these GPS add on modules are way overpriced, they probably cost $20 to manufacture.

I just think the Solmeta Pro is a little bit complicated. The priority is taking a good photo.

For the bluetooth one, with or without cable is the same. Since the bluetooth is easily influnced by water, metal or some obsticles, the receiver should be very near the main device.

The Easytag one is a choice. Simple operation and integrate with tracking, also the price is reasonable.
