Photo Geotagging is the process of adding geographical identification metadata to photographs. These data usually consist of latitude and longitude coordinates, as well as altitude, and place names. Photo Geocoding refers to the process of adding non-coordinate based geographical identifiers, such as a street address, to the photographs.

    Sometimes Frustrating

    Comments about GiSTEQ C7-02PLUSN-01 PhotoTrackr Plus:

    This product works, however it can be frustrating at times! The biggest issue is keeping the bluetooth pairing. I use a Black Rapid RS5 strap and I put the GPS receiver by my shoulder pad. When the camera is slung down by my hip, the camera will loose bluetooth lock. I then have to turn the camera off and then back on to re-establish the connection. If I am not paying attention, I will take photos with no geo tag because of the loss of this connection. I don't know why it loses connection, it is less than 2.5' away at any time. When I bring the camera up and turn off then back on, it re-establishes connection and I can shoot away.

    The other issue is it takes a LONG time for GPS lock initially when you fire it up for the first day. Up to 5 minutes with NO obstructions in the sky. I have yet to get a GPS lock when the unit is placed in a window.

      Comments about GiSTEQ C7-02PLUSN-01 PhotoTrackr Plus:

      I bought this product because it has a unique feature that automatically remembers your last GPS position and continues to tag your pictures if you happen to walk inside a building. This is much better than lossing your GPS lock and not getting any GEOTAG info at all like most of the other products. Blue tooth connection seems to take a while if you start it up cold even after you initially set up a pairing. Bluetooth device is small and barely drains the battery power of your camera. Also, does not tie up hot shoe so you don't have to remove it to use outside fill flash. The separate GPS receiver has a convenient carrying case that fits on your belt or camera bag strap - just turn it on and forget about it! I gave it 4 stars because the bluetooth paring can take a while when starting up cold.

        This unit contains two products that should be sold separately. One is the Bluetooth receiver that attaches to the camera. This is an AOKA AK-4N. The other piece is an unmarked GPS receiver that operates in slave mode, broadcasting to any paired device. It pairs easily with the camera unit.

        I've used the product for probably 16-20 hours in two weeks.

        I highly recommend the AOKA AK-4N and wish I had bought it, in conjunction with a different GPS receiver. This receiver is mediocre at best.

        To test it, I've used it linked to the camera. I've also used it linked to my blackberry to track movements, mapping and geocaching. It performs poorly. Too frequently it cannot maintain a signal lock. I tried it walking around Manhattan today, where it was nearly worthless. Walking up Fifth Avenue on a perfectly clear day, no signal lock at all.

        I find the combination of these two items woefully inadequate. Anyone considering a purchase should buy only the camera attached unit. (And, I'd suggest BH figure out how to sell ONLY that piece, buying from other than GiSTEQ.) Then, you could pair it with a better GPS signal receiver.

          Comments about GiSTEQ C7-02PLUSN-01 PhotoTrackr Plus:

          The PhotoTracker Plus is simple and easy to use. Plug the dongle into the camera and it receives wireless GPS data from the receiver. The receiver has its own rechargeable battery that saves the huge drain on camera batteries that other products have. The GPS reciever also remembers your last location when you go out of satalite signal.
          Best of all, when you have question or need repair, GiSTEQ customer support is fantastic.
