I think that this field is useful, but why not add a "Date" type without the time as well? Or do they have such a thing?

Yes they have. And six more types of date datatypes.

E 12°55'05.25"
N 56°04'39.16"

what kind of benefits is there to using this date type over the other one?

You said index seek, what does a regular datetime column do when indexed and used in a where clause?
