  • Cameras that support the GPS assist data update function using OI.Track are TG-4, TG-3 and TG-860. (as of May 2015)
  • While the GPS assist data is effective for four weeks after downloading (two weeks in TG-860), the data is updated every day. When using the GPS function, updating to the latest data is recommended.
  • Use Private mode when connecting the camera to a smartphone using Wi-Fi. You cannot transfer the GPS assist data with One-Time mode.
  • You can also update the GPS assist data on a computer using OLYMPUS A-GPS Utility software.
