    Is there a way to see where your photos were taken? Or an app? The iPhone has a built in geotag thing right beside the photos...it would be cool to see where I have been taking them!

    Go to the default camera app. Click the settings button that comes up on the corner of the touchscreen. Switch over to the second tab (it has a wrench icon looking picture) then put a check by "GPS". Take a picture.

    Then go in the gallery app and click to show all the thumbnails of all the pictures you've taken with your camera. When it shows all the thumbnails of your camera pictures, click the switch on the top right corner to switch view types from grid to organized, there it'll group your pictures by date and location.

    Also when you transfer them from your phone to computer the longitude and latitude are contained in the metadata.

    If you're viewing an image that's geotagged, the MORE menu will have the SHOW ON MAP option, otherwise it's removed from the menu.

    Also the details will show all the detailed geospatial data which is sort of cool.

    Any way to view multiple geotagged locations at once on the map like the i4?

    As far as I can tell there' no native support, if you tap-hold on an image (or click the left menu button) you go into multi-select mode and then the MORE button loses the Show on Map option (you can do bulk upload, email, etc., though which is kind of cool).

    That 'Been There' app linked above (1st link) has good reviews!

    So you are saying your GPS works? How long does it take to lock your position?

    How accurate?
