    Answer a few quick questions to evaluate your visit.

    Adding the geographical position to your photos

    Turn on geotagging to add the approximate geographical location (a geotag) to photos when you take them. The geographical location is determined either by wireless networks (mobile or ‎Wi-Fi‎ networks) or GPS technology.

    When Icn sony statusbar gps on appears on the camera screen, geotagging is turned on but the geographical position has not been found. When Icn sony camera geotag on appears, geotagging is turned on and the geographical location is available, so your photo can get geotagged. When neither of these two symbols appears, geotagging is turned off.

    To turn on geotagging

    1. From your Home screen, tap Icn sony home apptray normal.
    2. Tap Settings > Location.
    3. Tap the on-off switch.
    4. Activate the camera.
    5. Tap Icn sony menu settings l.
    6. Tap More > Save location. Drag the slider to the right.
