The camera location data feature can be used to record track logs that when opened in ViewNX-i show the route of your travels for a given day. Location data from the logs can be added to pictures taken with other cameras.
Track logs can be recorded as described below.

2 Enable location data.

To view tracks on a map, you can copy log files to a computer using a card reader or by other methods and then open them in ViewNX-i. Click the icon in the [Map] tab and then click [Add] under [Track Log File] and choose a log file.
The track will appear on the map. The start () and end () pins mark the start and end of the track.
If you take your D6 on a shoot with a second camera, say a D5, the location data from the D6 can be used to add location data to pictures taken with the D5 based on the time of recording.
