Anyone get the GP-E2 GPS yet?

Has anybody received the GP-E2 GPS yet in the US?  I see it has been available in other countries for awhile.

Received one today from Norman Camera.  It's a little big since it takes a AA battery.  I glanced at the manual, put a battery in it (it didn't come with one by the way; how cheap can you get...), and attached it to a 5DM3.  Powering it on enables the GPS Settings in the 5DM3 menus.  It took about 60 seconds from power on to acquire satellites.  Not bad, since I was indoors!  I took a test shot and loaded it onto my computer.  It came with a CD with Canon's Image Browser EX software on it.  The mapping utility is a feature of the IB EX package.  It uses Google Maps and put the position within about 6 feet of where the shot was taken.  The manual says it will run 39 hours at Canon's default settings which included 15 second updating.  Only time will tell if that is so...
