Is anyone else having issues with third party remote switches working consistently with their D90??

I have tried both the Bower RCLN3R and the Satechi TM series. Both claim to operate on the D90. Both fit into the GPS port. However, they work intermittently (for me). I can't figure out why they work sometimes (usually when I am sitting in my living room) and not others (in the field).

I wanted to use these brands because of the timer features. The Nikon MC DC2 does not have a timer feature.

Since I am having the same problem with two differnet remotes, could the problem be with my D90 (the GPS port)? And, if so, what do I do about it? Or, is this what I can expect from third party providers?

Does anyone have a good experience suggestion for a remote switch with a timer feature?
