Sony FS5 GPS to set Time Code, Multi-Cam

Has anyone used the GPS feature on the Sony FS5 to set TC, perhaps to multi cameras?

Renting a couple Sony FS5 for a multi-cam 8 day road trip and of course would like to match timecode and since FS5 will not allow TC Jam Sync so I'll have to manually set TC. Been there done that many times.

I found this in a Sony press release and curious if anyone has tested this.

Also the GPS will now work (provided you have the handle attached), so footage can be geotagged for future reference and the cameras internal clock can be synchronised to the GPS time signal. This may be useful for multi-camera shoots as at least the time on each camera will be exactly the same.

Thank you
