You don't need any software. Just download the assist file from here...:

...and put it in this folder on your card:

\PRIVATE\SONY\GPS\

After inserting the card in the camera, go into the menu and check that it shows valid assist data for one month from now.

I do it this way all the time. I don't want to be dependent on software from Sony.

Dude!!!

Thank you very much.

I've been trying to follow some of these chains of all the software I'd have to install on my PC and how to get them install, and what process to go through to use it to do this. Why could they just put that in the manual, down file from here, put on card here....

Works for me. Now, does the camera store that data somewhere internally or does it rely on it being in the CD card?  (I guess I'll find out soon enough, when I switch cards).
