    What are the options for encoding pictures' EXIF with location data?

    I use smugmug and I can manually type in addresses or lat/long but that isn't exactly fast if I have a set of 100 shots. I understand some cameras have GPS built-in but I don't want to buy a new camera and plus those aren't DSLRs.

    What I'd ideally like to have is a GPS that just tracked me (breadcrumb mode or whatever) and software that could match those 'breadcrumbs' to the EXIF data in a folder of pictures. Then it could match times to put lat/long data in all the pics. Is there anything out there like that? Any other cool options?

    I take long motorcycle rides and it'd be cool to put something like that on my website.

    just use a standalone gps and a journal to keep track. or u could skip the journal and just make a waypoint entry and then go back and use the time/date to match stuff up

    That still means me typing in 100 or whatever GPS entries. It's also too much work to jot it down when I stop to take a quick pic.

    I'm looking for something automated.

    I thought some cameras have bluetooth that link with a bluetooth capable GPS, and i think the camera can put the coordinates into the exif data.

    Man, that's it. That seems like it'll do exactly what I want. $130, not bad for software and GPS.
