What/which GPS and cable works with Nikon D2X/D2Xs/D2Hs/D200/D3? (the same applies to D90 with GND9 cable)
Nikon's GPS requirement is a GPS having an RS232 serial interface and outputs NMEA version 2.01 (or later) at 4800 baud rate. That includes majority of GPS on the market today though Nikon specifies only Garmin eTrex and Magellan SporTrak models as compatible. May be they were the only models they tested. For other GPS models, we doubt you can get any confirmation from either the GPS or Camera manufacturer for their compatibility.

Here is a list of what models that can or cannot be used. Information are taken from manuals of individual models from the manufacturer's web sites. We include only handheld models which is practical for use with the camera. Larger and automotive models are not included for this reason. If your GPS is not listed please consult your manual or GPS manufacturer.

How to set up your GPS for use with Nikon:
All Garmin GPS -
Menu > Setup > Interface > NMEA (or NMEA OUT on some GPS) Baud should be 4800 by default on all Garmins and not changeable.

Magellan Meridian / Sportrak -
Menu > Setup > NMEA > V2.1 GSA
Menu > Setup > Baud Rate > 4800

There is no setup necessary on the camera. When the cable and GPS are connected, with camera on and metering activated, a GPS symbol appears on top LCD display. If no position lock is acquired on the GPS, the GPS symbol flashes. When lock is acquired, the GPS symbol stays on. When you take a picture with the GPS symbol on, your GPS position data is recorded in the picture exif data field. When you play back the picture in the camera, you can see the GPS data (you must have selected data field in the playback display mode - p.141 in D200 manual)

If no GPS symbol is displayed on the LCD, check your GPS if the settings are correct. Do not forget that you must active the camera metering for the cable to work. Because the cable requires power (power consumption by the cable is very minimal so there is very little drain on the camera battery.) from the camera. Power is supplied only when metering is activated (half press shutter). When Camera is receiving GPS signal, whether lock is acquired or not (GPS symbol flashes or not), camera metering is continuously active so cable is receiving power all the time. If there are time gaps between taking pictures, you can turn the camera off to preserve power. If you do not want to turn the camera off, you can disconnect the cable off GND2 (keep GND2 connected with camera). This way the camera will go to sleep mode after a short time. When you re-connect the cable, remember to half press shutter to provide power to the cable. But turning the camera off is recommended.
If the GPS symbol flashes, it means no position lock has been acquired. No GPS position will be recorded if you take pictures when GPS symbol flashes.

DO NOT turn off the GPS if you are going to take a picture anytime. Because it takes time (seconds or minutes depending on the GPS) to re-acquired position lock when a GPS is turned off and then on again. Do not confuse this with powering the cable. The cable works instantly once power is supplied. So by keeping the GPS on and cable connected all the time you can take picture with GPS position as soon as you turn camera on (your GPS may lose lock from time to time particularly if your GPS is not in view of open sky).

Tip - as a general good practice, ALWAYS connect/disconnect interface cable GND2 with CAMERA OFF.
