<p>I have been interested in GPS on my camera since I shot slides. I remember taking my journal, and writing where a shot was shot at the Grand Canyon, by X tree on Y street years ago. Today we don't need journals, with entries, of f stops, shutter speeds, locations, and such because we have metadata. In my opinion this is one of the greatest advancements about digital technology and having all the data travel with your pictures is priceless.<br>
So long story short - GPS info...Read more here. (http://www.fourthirdsphoto.com/blog/?p=116)

Yes, allmost everywhere ...before US ministery of Defence changes signal timings from sattelites. But in some countries it is barely legal (Cuba). When i was there 1 month ago I had GPS with me and it was not so good feeling :). But they had their own problems and turists are very welcome and free...

...and this is the reason why (photos will be added soon, I spend my time with new E-3 ;) now). Sorry, this site is in Czech language: http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=UTF8&hl=cs&msa=0&t=p&om=1&msid=111718614084263526718.00044051d2b69b8af8c52&ll=21.42239,-79.562988&spn=6.440339,11.074219&z=7

Update: Today, I brought in about 55 shots, in the manner I described. And when I saved the GPS info, it over wrote, all the keywords, copyright, and notes I added. Not cool. at all. So I have something else I have to figure out the work around.
The temporary solution, will be to first add the GPS info before I import the files into lightroom, and then import them, adding as I import my copyright, metadata, and presets. (Usually clarity, Saturation, and a touch more sharpening)
Then I add any specific keywords if I need them, and I can then go about sorting, and tweeking.
