GMAX-EOS2 is a GPS receiver specially designed for Canon EOS. It automatically records location data and direction as EXIF information to each photo or video when shooting.


    ·  The GMAX-EOS2 is a hardware upgrade of GMAX–EOS. The main improvement of GMAX-EOS2 is Bluetooth equipped. User can enable the Bluetooth to establish wireless connections to mobile, which can then be used to control the camera and take pictures remotely.

    ·  Compatible with Canon GPS Receiver GP-E2, support Canon Mirrorless cameras EOS RP / EOS R, and Canon EOS-1D X, EOS 5D Mark III, EOS 5Ds, EOS 5Dsr, EOS 6D(WG), EOS 7D, EOS 90D, EOS 80D, 70D, 77D, 800D (Rebel T7i), 760D (Rebel T6s), 750D (Rebel T6i), 700D (Rebel T5i), 650D (Rebel T4i), 200D II (Rebel SL3), 200D (Rebel SL2), 100D (Rebel SL1), 1500D (Rebel T7), 1300D (Rebel T6), 1200D (Rebel T5) and also EOS M2, M. All camera models have been tested.

    ·  Dual positioning system, GPS plugs Beidou (BDS), user can choose mixed or single satellite system to records location information (longitude, latitude, elevation, direction, and Universal Coordinated Time (UTC)) as EXIF information to images when shooting.

    ·  Measures Barometric or GPS/BDS altitude, user can choose their preferred altitude data base on actual environment. With the altitude value can be calibrated, the altimeter altitude is more accurate even with no GPS signals in door a room.

    ·  GMAX-EOS2 supports two communication method. Hotshoe for direct camera connection; Digital (USB) Port for connection via dedicated interface cable to USB port.

Build in Altimeter Barometer

Two kinds of altitude data provided, one is from GPS, other is from barometric altimeter. Altitude from barometric altimeter can be adjusted and calibrated, which ensure the altitude more accurate.

Indoor location

Re-use the last location information (Latitude, Longitude) when there is no signal. The Altitude, Direction and UTC time are real time running by built-in sensors

Equipped 1900mAh lithium battery no energy is drained from the camera's battery

Full charge supports more than 18 hours of continuous work.

Auto working mode

Choosing Auto working mode, GMAX-EOS2 is on / off follows camera's on / off.

4GB memory supports more than 170 days continuous log record at the interval of 1 sec. User copy or delete log files like an "U flash driver".

Hot shoe or USB terminal connectivity

It connects to camera via special USB spiral cable when use an external Flashlight. Another way is simply mounted on camera's hot shoe.

GPS Time Sync

Camera time can be synchronized to UTC provided by GPS.
