I just purchesed a Nikon GP-1 GPS unit. My EXIF info, on Flicker says GPS sattelites 07. Can some one please tell me, what that means? Thank you.

Looking at a couple of your shots, I see different numbers listed for this value. I'm guessing that this represents the number of satellites used to generate the position fix for that image.

It's useful in that it gives you a reasonable idea of how accurate the reading might be, but other than that, no, not particularly useful.

Here's a Flickr EXIF that shows the entry (near bottom of listing) www.flickr.com/photos/retrocactus/3099562006/meta/in/phot...
