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.
