Hello all,

I would like to suggest Jolla team to consider adding the geotags functionality to Jolla's camera. The think is that this is very cool and handy feature, that is extremely useful during a travelling.

I used to use my N9 with external GPS that helped me to navigate abroad. This is my standard toolkit for a travelling during last few years. Works perfectly:

(supporting of an external GPS receiver is already posted on this website. Here is the link: "bluetooth gps support". Please vote for it as well if you are interested in this topic)

Nokia Maps allowed to save maps for the offline usage. Thus, roaming prices absolutely don't bother me abroad.

Additionally, N9 allowed to attach to each picture a GPS tags. Thus, I can track my travelling path on a map when I came home back. This is how this setting looks like in N9:

In this issue ticket, I would like to suggest to add the same functionality for the Jolla camera. Thank you.

I didn't even expect this feature to be missing from Jolla :/ Good that you brought this up. Needs to be fixed quickly but I guess this is already on the todo list of the Jolla team.

@JukkaH I really hope so.

This question refers to geotags specifically but it could be widened to tags in general using the EXIF standard. The N900 did this really nicely and I think the N9 also had this possibility.

The gallery could use these tags to sort pictures you might want to transfer or show.

@stezz I am afraid I was not clear enough. I mean I have already external GPS receiver, and now I would like to have a feature in Jolla phone to connect to that device. This is how it looks line in Nokia N9: http://goo.gl/tnPuDR
