The Best Nikon GPS – Dawntech Eco Pro-F Review

The Eco Pro-F is the best Nikon GPS.  I have been using the Dawntech di-GPS Pro for many years now. I am extremely excited to share my thoughts on the new Dawntech GPS for Nikon DSLR cameras.  The Eco Pro-F is compact but packs the same GPS power and weather sealing as the di-GPS Pro.


The Eco Pro-F supports the Nikon DSLR bodies with 10-pin ports.  It is a direct replace of the Nikon GP-1 and uses less than 1/3 of the power consumption of the GP-1.  It is weather sealed for moisture and dust.  The Eco Pro-F has 66 GPS channels for fast acquisition and reacquisition. An important feature is the built-in 10-pin connector for remote shutter release.  That means photographers can capture long exposures, HDR and more while geotagging their photographs.

Check out my video review.

The Eco Pro-F has replaced my di-GPS as a full-time GPS on my cameras.  The di-GPS will now serve as a backup or if I need both bodies at the same time.  I highly recommend picking up an Eco Pro-F if you have been searching for a GPS for your Nikon camera.   It really is the best Nikon GPS.

Pick up your Eco Pro-F from Amazon or directly from Dawntech.

Thanks for reading and happy shooting,


Update 9/23/13: The best just got better.  Dawntech recently announced the Eco Pro-F with a locking ring so it doesn’t fall out of the 10-pin connector.

    I am using a gps-pro unit for my Nikon D800. Although i am very happy with its technical capabililities i have problems with it. I am using gps unit number THREE at thIS moment. The problem with all the previous ones AND with the current one is that the “thru” connector to a remote control cord gives me a lot of headaches. None of the units are able to make a stable connection, sometimes there is a xonnection with my remote xontrol, sometimes there is no connection at all. I am using original Nikon remotes, tried a few different ons and also the cord that comes with the triggertrap remote gives this sort of problems. anyone else tried remote controls and have this problems?

      I’ve had no issues with my Eco Pro-F, so if you are I would suggest contacting Dawntech.
