Customer Question
I purchased a Sony...

I purchased a Sony DSC-HX90V for Christmas and I am not sure how I get the GPS mapping/tracking function to work.

Technician's Assistant: Who makes your GPS?

I thought this camera had built in GPS??????

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far with your GPS?

I took a photo and used a program I down loaded - playmemories. I can load my pics onto the computer but there are no instructions as to what to do next.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Software Expert to know before I connect you?

No - except when I was trying to get it to work - I did get a map and it said the location was Tokyo - so I assumed this was something generic and had no relevance to the actual photo.
