tobyink,

Thanks for the suggestion (which I tried), but neither picture had any GPS info. I'm running Android 2.3, so I'm going to assume that the camera's aren't set up correctly.

Thanks...Ed

    As you say, perhaps the configuration is defaulting to not embedding GPS data. Which is sensible enough. IIRC there was a bug existing since at least 2.3 in which GPS data could be corrupted. 2.3 is fairly old, it may be worth while investigating the possability of running a third party ROM on your phone. I've used Cyanogenmod (or derivatives) for years on 2 different handsets.

    Update: example of the bug
