    I notice that the camera app is now geotagging on my pics after the 2.1 upgrade. I would like to shut that function off. Anyone know how to do that?

    Camera>Options>Store location>Off in 2.0.1. I don't have 2.1 yet, but I doubt it changed.

    Edit: I have 2.1 now, and it is the same.

    Turn off geotagging on camera - DroidX

    If you open up the camera app, and hit the menu button... there is an option for 'tags'... select that and turn on/off 'Auto Location Tag'.

    Yes, Geoff... I am aware... but the question was NOT answered. So, I answered it for newbies like me who come on looking for information. :) More annoying to me not to have an answer when I am looking for it.

    I'm glad this thread is still active, because I can't get the darn thing to work correctly! When I open my camera app and click on the menu icon, the only choices I'm given is to switch to video, or go to the gallery. I'm using Android version 2.2.2 - any ideas?

    When you are using the camera, you should see white buttons where you can disable the flash, white balance, etc. One of those is to enable/disable geotagging. You may need to tap on the screen for those buttons to appear.

    Thanks for the quick response! I guess I've got it turned off now. It just said "Store Location" on the 2nd button from the top, and I selected off. Thanks for the help!!!

    why shut off geotagging if you don't have to?

    There are free applications that let you remove geotags and other stuff when you share photos. Try using Pixelgarde Photo Privacy Editor for your Droid. It's free and better than turning off gps. Pixelgarde Photo Privacy Editor

    You don't have to turn GPS off to disable geotagging.

    In any case, the why doesn't matter. There are people that prefer to have it disabled. Why does the why matter to you?

    I found this video in my email today. It speaks to risks associated with posting pictures on publicly available websites that contain geotagging data.
