Why don't you just save the location on the satnav? Or can't you do that with the model you have? On mine I can just save the location. Very useful.

cameras. I have dates for the images, but no positions. For me it
would be interesting to be able to go to Google Earth and tell where
they were when they took the photos. When I say where I mean more

With this in mind I have been going through a bunch of my photos and
locating the position they were taken and adding that to the photo
collection. This way someone looking through my photos can tell just
where the photos were taken. Will anyone care, I don't know but I
think they might.
Part of all of this is a very simple thing I have done for years,
photograph my GPS unit from time to time when out photographing. I
might be able to figure out where we were when driving across the
country, but when going up the inside passage no way without the GSP.
Here is an example.

I can go to Google Earth and see just where the photo was taken, what
is more anyone else looking at my photos can do the same.
That sounds like a kewl idea.
Saves a lot of discussions later as to exactly where that shot was taken.
How does that relate to the location of the shot? Yes, I know I can do it with paper and pencil, the old fashioned way. With film that was feasible. With my tendency to take more digital shots, that method won't work for me. I may do my sorting several weeks/months after shooting.
Er! it saves the location of the shot. All you do is give it a name and date if required.
If it works for you, fine. As I stated above, I have to find something that will fit into MY workflow.
