Charge the batteries completely before use. You can charge the battery in the camera, or by using an external charger.
Turn the camera on by pressing the Power switch on the top of the camera, left side. The monitor will turn on.
Use the multi-selector (the dial around the OK button) to navigate through menus by pressing it left, right, up or down to move the selection.
To configure the GPS settings, turn the top Mode dial to GPS. (See page 60 in the Nikon P6000 Users Guide)
The GPS Status display will indicate if GPS is ON or OFF.
To turn GPS on, press the MENU button, select “Record GPS data”, and press the OK button. Select “ON” then press “OK” to turn the GPS on. Press the MENU button to return to the GPS status page.
The GPS status screen will show you when the GPS has an accurate fix at your location. A valid fix is indicated by two or three white satellite icons (on the normal picture taking mode, this is a satellite with 2 or 3 boxes next to it). Three icons represents the best fix available, two means not an ideal fix.
If you have trouble getting a good fix, be sure you are in an open area free of any large buildings or trees. Make sure you do not cover the GPS antenna (left side of camera). It can take 5-10 minutes to get a fix for the first time.
Turn the top Mode dial to Auto (camera icon). This mode is recommended for first time users.
Make sure the GPS icon on the right of the display has two or three boxes next to the satellite icon.
You are now ready to take GPS pictures!!
Press the shutter release half-way to focus, then all the way to take a picture.
The capacity number on the lower right side of the monitor shows how many pictures can fit on the memory card using the current Image quality and image size settings. The image quality and image size icons are located just above the capacity number.
