Can someone please help me figure out the best way to add location to the photos from my A7R3? It doesn’t matter if it is during the shot or in post. I’ve tried the Sony app which doesn’t work, and I have tried Lightroom, but that doesn’t actually do it either. At a complete loss at it being 2020 and I can’t get reliable photo information, or even add it later.

Thank you

I've found bluetooth syncing to add location data in real time using the current version of Imaging Edge Mobile on an iPhone with iOS v13 works consistently with the a7Riii and the a7iii (and I also tried it with an a9iii and that worked fine as well).

I've also used IEM (and before that, PMM) on earlier version of iOS and on various flavours of Android, and the results were less consistent. With the current iOS it seems pretty stable.

Meanwhile, for older images that don't have geotags embedded, I currently use the Exif Editor application on MacOS to add or edit the location tags:

I don't think the Exif Editor app is available for Windows, but there are quite a few other options the work similarly.
