    I am about to go on a trip and have left things too late to research properly.

    I have an iphone3 which has GPS and a camera. is there a way to capture the geotag info when you take a picture so you know exactly where you were when you took it?

    Thanks for any advice.

    Hi,
    If it's a 3GS you have (it will be if it has a gps) then when u take a photo it is auto geotagged. When you go into photo album on your phone at the bottom of the screen you will see a places tab. Click it and you will see pins for photos you have taken.

    So far I am not aware how you can export the photos and view them on a map other than on the phone.

    smugmug lets you do this, you have to pay a yearly subscription for the smugmug website, and download the app onto your iphone.

    Problem is the iphone is pretty basic as a camera, I would rather have a proper camera, there are a few starting to filter through with gps chips in them now.

    You can buy aftermarket USB geotag modules for digi camera that do not have in built gps. Just google for it. Can't remember the name of the best one, I do remember it's yellow though
