Hi folks, I have just seen the new pentax G P S unit & I am very interested but it does not say if it will work on the K7, I would appreciate any advice or help. Thanks Ian.

This is taken from the literature that is available so far. I suspect that the K-7 and other SR equipped bodies will need a firmware update for this to work on any of those bodies and historically, Pentax has not released firmware updates of their obsolete cameras.

Quote:
Compatible models are the K-5, K-r and 645D (as of May 2011). Some of the O-GPS1’s functions may not be available when used with the 645D. Note: The camera’s firmware must be updated to the latest version In order to use the O-GPS1 properly with a compatible PENTAX digital SLR camera body.

There are two other threads on this subject so I'll lock this one.
