PhotoMapper v0.7 Camera settings

No special hardware is required to synchronize GPS data with photographs. The only requirement is that the camera time is somewhat correct.

Correct time

GPS acquires the time from the satellite signal which means that the clock in the camera should be set to correspond to the GPS time. For time adjustments to be avoided in the software the camera time should be set to the same time zone as the computer that is used to run the PhotoMapper software. This normally means that it's easiest to use the time for the home town, regardless of travel to other time zones.

What if the time doesn't match?

If the camera time and the GPS time is not synchronized or if you have e.g. adjusted the camera time zone, you can compensate for this in the software. See the help for time adjustments for more help on this subject.
