Hi Jacjster,

Interesting but I'm not sweating this security intrusion. By now you've figured out that my forte is not the grip & grin fish picture. There are enough people who find their way into some of the most remote spots that I travel to already for me to risk advertising them. I've seen a few too many places go to the dogs because of folks who wanted to tell about their success more than to have it to themselves.

My Grandfather shipped out to WWI and served under Blackjack Pershing and my Father landed on the beach at Normandy and then finished his tour serving under General Patton. In our home the saying, "Loose lips sink ships" was a lesson never far from the conversations when I was growing up.

Mum's the word,

Ard

I can see this as an issue for some that fish little known and little fished waters. For me it is not much of an issue. The waters I fish are world famous and widely known. There is nothing secret about them.

Understood but around here we have many 'blueliners'... people who look for the faint blue lines on the Delorme to hike into. They treasure the honey-holes they find and do their best to keep them top secret.

Another worry as that bad guys can learn quite a bit about who takes a picture through this and, being the low-life preditors that they are, use that info in bad pursuits.

Interesting that the manufacturers decided to turn on geotagging by default. Most folks that buy smart phones will have no idea that they are advertising their location all over the net. Just another reason why I don't need a smart phone.

Simple enough to avert, use a regular digital camera, or even a disposable that you get scanned.

I'm more worried about the safety concerns. I know my teenage step daughter takes pics and posts them online. I'll have to check them for geotagging now. (Like we don't have enough nightmares as parents....)

Here's an article from a few months back
Geotag, You're It! What Your Smartphone Might Be Saying Behind Your Back | Privacy Rights Clearinghouse

You should be able to turn off the feature. I think it's turned on by default by the phone manufacturers. Same with the geotagging digital cameras.

My Pentax takes better pix than my cell phone anyways.
