Default Pentax Firmware 1.10 Update for K5

Just updated my K5 firmware to ver.1.10
Can't tell what other features add-on, except GPS menu.
But I don't hv GPS device, so I guess nothing much for me

I've looked at other places at the screen shots of the menu additions. I'm enough of a gadget person that I'm not going to update right now - I'm afraid that if I kept seeing the menu saying "GPS" I wouldn't be able to resist buying one; my first reaction when seeing the menu item was "I WANT one!" Logic tells me that it's the last thing I need to be spending my photo budget on, while I like geotagging photos, I already have that capability through my Garmin and some software. Yes, the Pentax unit would be more convenient, but would be unnecessary weight. The times I want to geotag are times when I'd have the Garmin with me anyway.

So I'm avoiding the whole idea by not installing the firmware upgrade. Maybe later, when I have more will-power than I have right now.
