    Geotagging in Camera - way off?

    It looks like camera geotagging feature is acting up on D3 - location stored is way off - 60 or so miles off (not yards or feet). And the thing happens not only on stock camera but with 3rd party camera apps too. At least for me. How is geotagging in camera working for you guys/gals?

    It sounds like the whole camera app needs either a huge update, or to just be replaced entirely between this and the blue tint issue.

    I just tested this on mine, first pic using stock camera showed two geo tags, one in the correct city, the other at least 60 miles away. Then I took a pic using camera zoomFX and it had one location, the wrong far away one. I switched back to the stock app and again it showed 2 geo tags, but this time both were in the correct city, went back to camera zoomFX and it again showed wrong far away city. I will be traveling this week from AZ to NY & CT so I will get a chance to test it more.

    Seems to be a bug, it's been posted on the motorola support forums, and affects every D3.
