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

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.

Allan, a question. Did the GPS folder appear on its own in your camera or did you create it? In my case, I just have the PRIVATE and SONY ones, but not GPS. Any suggestions? I'd like to use the .dat file as a back up for fresh GPS assist data whenever I can't plug the card to the computer but can plug the memory card.

Thanks in advance.
