The GPS Receiver GP-E1 is an EOS-1D X accessory that can geotag
your shots. Using the provided software Map Utility, you can view
shooting locations. The receiver can also set the camera time via GPS.
Shots taken while the receiver is
attached to the camera are
geotagged, adding location
information*1
(latitude, longitude,
elevation, and shooting time (UTC*2
))
to images.
Shooting locations and the shooting
direction of geotagged images can be
viewed on a virtual map on a
computer.
Images can also be tagged with the
shooting direction, using the
receiver’s digital compass (magnetic
north standard).
*1: Some traveling conditions or receiver settings may cause inaccurate location
information to be added to images.
*2: Coordinated Universal Time, abbreviated UTC, is essentially the same as
Greenwich Mean Time.

The following precautions are intended to prevent harm to you and others
as well as damage to equipment. Become familiar with the precautions
before using the receiver to ensure correct and safe operation.
To prevent fire, excessive heat, chemical leakage, or explosion, follow these safety
guidelines.
• Do not insert metallic objects between the receiver’s electrical contacts.
Keep the accessories away from children. In case of accidental ingestion, consult a
physician immediately.
In case of excessive heat, smoke, or fumes, immediately remove the batteries, being
careful to avoid burns. Continued use in this state may cause fire or burns.
Do not operate the receiver while driving. This poses a risk of traffic accidents.
Do not use the receiver where there is flammable gas. There is a risk of explosion or fire.
If the receiver is dropped and internal parts are exposed, do not touch the exposed
parts. There is a risk of electrical shock.
Do not disassemble or modify the receiver. High-voltage internal parts may cause
electrical shock.
Do not store the receiver in dusty or humid places. There is a risk of fire or electrical
shock.
Before using the receiver on board airplanes or in hospitals, make sure use is
permitted. Electromagnetic waves emitted by the receiver may interfere with
instrumentation or medical equipment.
Do not leave the receiver inside a vehicle in hot weather or near a heat source. The
receiver may become hot and cause burns if touched.
Do not use the receiver when it is covered by or wrapped in a cloth. This may trap
heat inside, posing a risk of case deformation or fire.
Do not use paint thinner, benzene, or other organic solvents to clean the receiver.
This poses a risk of fire and may be hazardous to your health.
If you drop the receiver in water, or if water or metal objects get inside, immediately
remove the batteries. This poses a risk of fire or electric shock.
If the unit malfunctions, becomes damaged, or requires repair, contact your
dealer or a Canon Service Center.
Handle the receiver in accordance with “Handling Precautions: Camera
Care” in the camera instruction manual.

To acquire GPS signals, bring your camera with the receiver attached
outdoors where the sky is unobstructed and aim it up. Keep your hand
or other objects off the top of the receiver.
1 Select [GPS device settings].
2 Set [GPS device] to [Enable].
If the [Calibrate digital compass]
screen is displayed, follow steps 6 – 7
on p.16.
3 Close the menu.
Press the <M> button.
GPS signal status is indicated by the
<r> icon on the camera’s rear LCD
panel.
Status details can be checked as
described in “Viewing GPS Information”

1 Select [GPS device settings].
2 Set [GPS device] to [Enable].
If the [Calibrate digital compass]
screen is displayed, follow steps 6 – 7
on p.16.
Viewing GPS Information
Signal acquisition takes about 30 – 60 seconds under favorable
conditions after you turn the camera on.
After initial signal acquisition, signals can be reacquired soon after the
camera is turned on again (under favorable conditions, and when the
camera has been off for less than approx. 30 minutes).
Places with Poor GPS Coverage
Location information may not be recorded, or inaccurate information may be
recorded where GPS signal coverage is poor, such as in the following
places.
Indoors, underground, in tunnels or forests, near buildings or in valleys
Near high-voltage power lines or mobile phones operating on the
1.5 GHz band
When traveling through different environments
Even in other places, GPS satellite movement may interfere with
geotagging and cause missing or inaccurate location information. The
information may also indicate that the camera has been used in a
different location, even if you were shooting at the same place.
Appended Information
If shooting is performed immediately after turning on the camera’s power
switch (or resuming use after auto power off) when the receiver is
attached to the camera, images may not be geotagged. Similarly,
directions may not be recorded correctly. To avoid this, wait a moment
before shooting.

c Wave the camera laterally in at least
a 180° arc.
d Wave the camera up and down in at
least a 180° arc.
e Rotate the camera in at least a 180°
arc as it faces the same direction.
Be careful not to drop the camera
during calibration.
Steps c, d, and e can be done in
any order. Keep moving the camera
until calibration is finished.
If the compass is not calibrated after
you do this, turn your body to the right
or left and move the camera again.
7 Finish calibration.
A screen indicating completion is
displayed when calibration is finished.
Although this screen may be
displayed while you are still moving
the camera in a direction of step 6
(c, d, or e), calibration has been
finished successfully.
For safety, remove the lens and other accessories before calibration.
As the digital compass uses geomagnetism, calibration may not be
possible under the following conditions: at high altitudes, near magnetic
fields, in steel-structure buildings, underground, etc. Even if calibration is
possible, the receiver may not be able to detect the shooting direction
correctly.

Select an option and press <0>.
[Auto update] updates the time after
the camera is turned on and a GPS
signal is received.
Setting Time from GPS on the Camera
If the GPS signal cannot be received from five or more satellites, time
setting is not possible. [Set now] will be unavailable.
Even if [Set now] is selected, auto time adjustment may not be possible,
depending on the timing of GPS signal acquisition.
When [Auto time setting] is set to [Auto update], the date and time
cannot be set manually using [Date/Time/Zone] in the menu.
If you prefer not to change the time (when using [Sync time between
cameras] with WFT series, for example), select [Auto time setting:
Disable].

Keep the following points in mind when using the receiver.
In certain countries and regions, the use of GPS may be restricted.
Therefore, be sure to use GPS in accordance with the laws and
regulations of your country or region. Be particularly careful when
traveling outside your home country.
Be careful about using GPS functions where the operation of
electronic devices is restricted.
Others may be able to locate or identify you by using location data in
your geotagged pictures or movies. Be careful when sharing these
images with others, as when posting them online where many others
can view them.
GPS signal reception may take some time.
Never leave the receiver near any equipment that generates a
strong magnetic field, such as magnets or electric motors.
