Tied to a bad cable
The GPS unit is great. The cable is poor. It breaks with monotonous regularity and becomes an expensive irritation to keep replacing.
The problem lies where the cable meets the 10 point pin: this junction bends easily due to the cable design resulting in fracturing of the wires within

bad cable design
My cable lasted 2 years before it broke. There are two flaws, the elimination of either would probably have saved the cable. First, it sticks out to the side. Putting it into a bag stresses the reinforced portion of the cable. Do this enough times and it will break leaving wires exposed. Second, my fingers have trouble screwing and unscrewing the connection. If it were easier to attach and remove, I would do so.

a necessary evil
Location, location, location! Lost, lost, lost! I love the GP-1 and having the GPS information. However, this cord is the bane of the GP-1's existence. To build such rock hard, quality cameras and produce subpar accessories makes no sense. The issue of the protrusion of the 10-pin connection is real. There needs to be a revised cable that exits up and not out and overhanging the side of the camera. Also, the cost of the replacement cord, that is going to suffer the same fate is too high.

The GP-1 will continue to work with frayed copper wires exposed. The cable will sustain damage from leaving the GP-1 on the hotshoe and continuously putting the camera in a camera bag and taking it out.
The cable makes a large loop from the D700 to the GP-1 which will bend while stored in the bag. A shorter cable, wrapped in mesh would last much longer.
