Recently I got a small GPS travel logger.  I have been experimenting with it, and this is the best way I have found for geotagging photos using it.

Software required:

  • @trip (this comes with the logger)
  • gpicsync

Export your trip as a GPX file from @trip.  This can then be opened in gpicsync, which will do the rest of the work for you.  Make sure you set the UTC offset in gpicsync.  It does support the CR2 files my 1000D outputs in RAW mode – however, it appears that Capture One strips the GPS information back out again when exporting to jpg, so watch out for that.

  1. GpicSync ? There is a better solution !
    I tried Geosetter 3.0.14 (
    It is far better respect other like GpicSync. Its GUI interface is well done and has a lot of features.
    Simply to use, almost nothing to do to configurate it. In a snap all the photo are geotagged using the data from logger unit.
    In a word: wonderful freeware !

  2. Thanks for the suggestion. I will try that one next time I am out with the GPS – looks like it will help with Capture One stripping out the GPS exif information using the buddy feature too.
