Additional information
in places where radio signals are blocked or
reflected, such as a shadowy place surrounded
by buildings or trees, etc. Use the camcorder in

You may not be able to record location
information at locations or in situations where
radio signals from the GPS satellites do not
reach the camcorder as follows.
In tunnels, indoors or under the shade of
Between tall buildings or at narrow streets
surrounded by buildings.
In underground locations, locations
surrounded by dense trees, under an elevated
bridge, or in locations where magnetic fields
are generated, such as near high voltage
Near devices that generate radio signals of the
same frequency band as the camcorder: near
1.5 GHz band mobile telephones, etc.
On triangulating errors
If you move to another location right after
setting the GPS switch to ON, it may take
a longer time for the camcorder to start
trianguating, compared to when you stay in the
same place.
Error caused by the position of GPS satellites
The camcorder automatically triangulates your
current location when the camcorder receives
radio signals from 3 or more GPS satellites. The
triangulating error allowed by the GPS satellites
is about 30 m (98 feet). Depending on the
environment of the location, the triangulating
error can be greater. In this case, your actual
location may not match the location on the map
based on the GPS information. Meanwhile,
the GPS satellites are controlled by the United
States Department of Defense, and the degree of
accuracy may be changed intentionally.
Error during the triangulating process
The camcorder acquires location information
periodically during triangulating. There is
a slight time difference between when the
location information is acquired and when the
location information is recorded on an image,
therefore, the actual recording location may not
match exactly the location on the map based on
the GPS information.
On the restriction of use of GPS on an
