Free PPC program that shows GPS data in photo?

Is there a free PPC picture viewing program that will show the GPS data stored in an image? I have the functionality turned on on my TP2 and would like to be able to see that data.

You can read it in footprints I think...

Re: Free PPC program that shows GPS data in photo?

Is there a cab to install this that'll work with the stock Verizon 6.5 ROM with 2.1 Manilla? What I'm finding seems to be particular to particular ROMS or particular GPS software (I just want something that'll display Lat/Long of a particular photo for now)

Re: Free PPC program that shows GPS data in photo?

K... discovered that the various versions I've seen are GPS program dependent, and that they're all fine for Google Maps. But the version over on XDA all point to either broken links. Found this one here

(UPDATED March 3rd)HTC Footprints CAB for Diamon! Google Maps/Tomtom

Which seems to install correctly. But once its there, how do I use it to view GPS data in an image? Or do I have to install mapping software like Google Maps to make it work?

Re: Free PPC program that shows GPS data in photo?

Oy vey.... finally figured this out

1) GPS Data is written to the EXIF data stored on the image
2) FootPrints doesn't read this in existing photos, it just creates its own photos and will record GPS data for those photos - but in a seperate file, not part of the photo itself
3) The FootPrints cabs that I've seen give an error in "FootCam.exe" when you try to add a footprint, because adding a footprint actually tries to launch the camera, and the cabs that are out there are for specific cameras.
4) A program I already have on the TP2, XNView Pocket, already shows EXIF data, and when I look, the GPS information is there for the GPS photos I've taken.
