    Does anyone know if it is possible to geo-tag photos without enabling GPS. Surely it should be able to do this via cell positioning?

    Obviously if I am in-doors, I cannot usually get a GPS lock + it takes a while to lock on, if I just want to point and click but still geo-tag, can I not just use cell location?

    I am not sure.

    Why not try it?

    I have tried and it doesn't seem to work without GPS. I find this a bit strange, as it knows where I am roughly as it almost instantly locks in on Google maps.

    I was hoping there was something obvious I was missing or someone had a little hint or tip on how to get round this. ;)
