Sounds interesting .. But how do you get the position you are at into the photo's Exif or linked to the Camera ??

I have used my car sat nav when off the beaten track for a few places but i had to use a note book and write Lat..long....and the photo frame No ??

A built in OR better still add on GPS(with its own batteries) would be much better esp if it wrote the details to Exuf

If you have a GPS that will record a track log that can be downloaded to a computer, there are programs that try to correlate the timestamps in the track logs and the timestamps in the images. It will then update the EXIF GPS fields in the image files.

Does this system give accurate Lat/Long positions of each photo ?????
