somebody should make a software that would bring to units ,camera and handheld gps unit together. i have the gp-e2 for 235.00 it is not a good buy.. it would be nice to have a unit that you could go back to a sight and shot some more.

There are bunches that will merge your GPS tracks from your stand-alone receiver with your photos as (or after) you download. I use Downloader Pro, as I mentioned above. I've also used GPicSync, GeoTag and and GeoSetter for specialized needs. Canon's Map Utility also provides this functionality if you have several cameras and one GP-E2 (or GPS-enabled Canon camera).

Chef; Check this out.
If you need a sample file from my garmin etrex to play with; PM me your email address and I'll send one to you. You can see what time my hike was 2 weeks ago, set your camera to the same time and take pictures, then play with merging the two. When you find a program you like, you can then buy a handheld GPS knowing you're good to go when you get it.

I use the first generation Garmin eTrex.. it has plenty of sensitivity for what I need it for. I don't need color, and I don't need the H model that is for high sensitivity (Mine did perfectly fine in the redwoods with a full canopy of tree cover in the Northern California coast)

With Downloader Pro, I set the program preferences (once) to where my GPS log files reside. This can be either the GPS, attached via USB to the computer or a directory on my computer. I use a directory on my computer, so I copy the files from the GPS to there using normal drag and drop. When I'm ready to download photos, I load the card, fire up Downloader Pro and just download the files from the card to the respective directory (which Downloader Pro can identify, and create if need be). Downloader Pro matches times between the photos and GPS track data to attach the appropriate location to each photo. So basically, I copy the GPS log file(s) to my computer, insert the camera card, and add title, comments and keywords to my photos. DL Pro adds copyright info, my contact info, location, and other constant metadata to the files, sorts them into directories based on the camera, folder and frame number range (I prefer 100 or fewer photos per folder), and renames them to include the camera model in the file name. The program does all the work.
