I recently purchased a Lumix TZ60 camera. Is the GPS assist

Resolved Question:

I recently purchased a Lumix TZ60 camera. Is the GPS assist data universal regardless of where you are in the world, or do you need to download data in the country in which you wish to use the camera at any given time?

You need data for this. It basically gets an internet connection, and from the address, knows where you are to a certain area so the actual GPS has a smaller area to coordinate. Basically makes it easier for the camera but it needs a data connection to download the information.

I take it from your answer that when I go to France and Switzerland later this year that I will need to download data in both countries.
