I was just about to purchase a Z6 and I noticed a potential hole in my workflow. I rely heavily on geotagging for documenting my travel photography. I see that the Z series cameras work with the now non-existent GP-1, and via SnapBridge and your phone. I am happy with my GP-1s on my D700 and D750. They are slow but get the job done. It turns out location is always on on my phone but my batteries must be recharged multiple times per day when I am home. The phone is barely usable when traveling over seas due to poor battery life. Hence, some questions:

First, does anyone know of a remaining source for GP-1s?

Does anyone know of a third party device to replace the GP-1 that works just as well or better and is compatible with the Z6?

What are folks current experiences with SnapBridge, especially on Android, with respect to ease of use and impact on battery life if assuming the phone already tracks location?

Any other ideas or thoughts for me?

I can’t imagine why Geotagging isn’t built into the camera today!

Thanks!
