    Atrix - geotagging photos and gps

    Two questions, my son recently purchased the Atrix, we are both new to smartphones and I am trying to learn the features of this phone as well.
    #1. Geotagging - How do I view the tagged photos on a map? I figured out how to select the tag option on the camera, but where/how do I view the photos on a map? Do I need a special app for this? One that isn't on the phone at the time of purchase?

    #2. GPS - How do I use the GPS feature? Is this an additional cost and I need to subscribe to this service? I have no need for voice (turn by turn) directions, can I use the GPS without this service? If so how?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi and welcome to the forums!

    #1 I'm not sure about, so I might defer that to someone else that might have accomplished that.

    #2 Just make sure GPS is enabled in Settings > Location & security > Use GPS satellites. Then you can use Google Maps or Google Nav for free. Well, they're free except the fact that it downloads the maps via your mobile data plan. In Maps you can make it locate you by tapping on the compass icon at the upper right of the screen.

    I rarely use Geo tagging on my pics, but I have just noticed something with my photo's.
    Using Picasa on my desktop, and on my phone, I can taake pics on my phone (Geo-tagged or just normal photo) and share them with my Picasa account, then log into my Picasa account on my desktop and view those photos.
    In the bottom right corner is an option to view the photo on Google maps. A pic I took indoors of my daughter has showed up on the map, and it was even accurate enough to tell what part of the house i was in at the time.
