EOS 80D Location information with Canon Connect App

It appears sending location information to the 80D isn't supported with the IOS Canon Connect App?  At least it's not showing up as an option when I load the app.   That stinks!  Come on Canon how hard can that be???

Hello etaggart, 

The Camera Connect App acquires GPS information with your mobile device and adds it to the photos and videos in your camera.

You can set the app to record the information even while your device is not connected to your camera, then transfer the data later.

Thanks Tim, Correct however it does not support sending location information to the Canon 80D for some reason.   It works sending location information with some of the powershot series with WiFi, but not the 80D.

I am having the same issue with the app. It states that the camera the app is connected to does not support this function.

It states in the app that DSLR do not support location information. I suspect it's not a technical limitation, but a decision to limit the app to providing that so DSLR buyers have to buy an expensive GP-E2 accessory or more expensive model DSLR.

Makes sense to me. The geotagging 2 app for iPhone provides similar functionality to an GP-E2 for 8 bucks. I will stick with that then and merge the data in Lightroom.
