Recently i bought  Sony HX 100 V in which IMAGE STABILIZATION is extremely good.

I am going to buy Sony HX100V, but I don't need GPS
feature, so any way to disable it, as I know for canon SX220 HS the GPS consumes
the battery charge even when the camera is off

I have not used either camera so I can not say for sure, but I am not sure if you will see any huge difference in image stabilization. Both cameras have similar in lens image stabilization.
