My friend showed me this whole concept of geotagging last night, and HoudahGPS was part of his workflow. He has a GPS device from CanadaGPS, it was about 135 bucks. He took the text file from the device and used HoudahGPS to convert it to a GPX file. He then used the GPX file in Photo Mechanic to match up the photos to the GPS data.
I am going to Iceland in 21 days so this is really interesting to me at this point! Trying to figure some things out. I came across the Amod AGL3080 device, its cheaper, takes batteries (which is a plus) and is 'driverless' as it seems. Basically what I am wanting to know, from people who have this device, is do you need HoudahGPS to use the file that comes from the AGL3080? I read online that it creates an ASCII file of your coordinates.
At this point, I am not sure what I can do with this ASCII file. Does HoudahGPS read it perfectly, do I need to convert it to a separate format, does HoudahGPS do all the work and I wouldn't need to introduce Photo Mechanic?
All these questions, I am sorry. If anyone has an input, I would love to find out ASAP so I can order the device that I need.
PS- I know very little about which devices are available. Any input there would be great as well
