While there are available multiple solutions for DSLR Geotagging, would it not be very convenient (and economical) to use the exiting equipment like the N900? This would eliminate need to carry (and purchase) a separate device.

If we had USB host mode on the N900 this would be SO easy (sigh)

I'm thinking that a EyeFi SD card with a simple software python server would allow the N900 to receive photos from the camera via EyeFi and geotag them (while acting as backend).

Anyone has a EyeFi card with a N900 that could test such software ?

Snags:
* Eye-Fi PRO only, the others won't do
* You'd still need a desktop PC to configure the eye-fi card
* AdHoc mode is a real power hog

I've been thinking about this as well. The easiest way would probably be to use the N900 as a GPS logger, which shouldn't be too hard to implement. Then, you can use existing software on your desktop to tag your pictures using the GPS log.

Do you have any suggestions what software would be good?

There were already a couple of GPS logger scripts for the N810, they should work even better on the N900 (as it seems its GPS actually connects :-).

Since I don't have a GPS yet, I haven't used such a software. However, I read an article about it in the German magazine c't. It mentions Photomapper, locr GPS Photo and GeoSetter for Windows and GPSPhotoLinker for Mac OS. It doesn't mention any Linux software, though. A quick google revealed the following possible Linux programs that might do the job: GPSBabel, GPX2Exif and gpsPhoto.

An additional problem besides the ones mentioned already is that the n900 doesn't have an SD card slot.

I think the idea is that the Eye-Fi card goes into the camera and connects via Wi-Fi to the N900.
