After this command

$ exiv2 -k -M"add Exif.GPSInfo.GPSMapDatum WGS-84" \
-M"add Exif.GPSInfo.GPSVersionID 2 0 0 0" \
-M"add Exif.GPSInfo.GPSLatitude 53/1 3/1 1380/100" \
-M"add Exif.GPSInfo.GPSLatitudeRef N" \
-M"add Exif.GPSInfo.GPSLongitude 6/1 32/1 4140/100" \
-M"add Exif.GPSInfo.GPSLongitudeRef E" test.jpg

the preview image from my Nikon coolpix E4800 picture has disappeared.

Additional information:

I use perl program exiftool [ http://owl.phy.queensu.ca/~phil/exiftool/ ]
to access the preview image.

$ exiftool -htmlDump0 test.jpg > test.html
gives very good debug information.

Acknowledged. That happens for the preview image in the makernote. IIRC the forum has some more info on this.

Related to #462: The new TIFF parser will be flexible enough to deal with the additional Preview IFD.
