Your waterproof GPS camera can capture all the action and geo tag your photos so you remember where every shot was taken. Ready to learn more? Here are some great waterproof cameras with GPS.

Nikon AW110 Underwater Camera with GPS - Top quality from a trusted name in photography

For decades, Nikon's Nikonos underwater camera series set the standard for underwater photography. Nikon stopped manufacturing the film-based cameras a few years ago, but is now making digital waterproof cameras. The AW110 has one of the highest resolution sensors among the waterproof cameras and a number of features, including GPS and HD video. The camera's built-in maps let you view your path, and it has an electronic compass that can help you stay on path.

From the manufacturer: The Nikon COOLPIX AW100 is water-proof, shock-proof and freeze-proof, so you can take it on all of your extreme adventures. It packs a 5x Zoom-NIKKOR ED glass lens and a 16.0-MP CMOS sensor to record low-light and fast-action photos and Full HD (1080p) movies. Life on the road deserves GPS + e-Compass, so the AW100's got these too. Add a 3-inch monitor, our new Action Control for easily adjusting settings when wearing gloves plus a range of in-camera special effects, and you've got a camera as rugged as you.
