I'm really fed up with your canon connect app!!!!
YOU NEED TO PUT GPS BACK INTO YOUR POINT AND SHOOT CAMERAS. It never added that much cost to the camera or bulk.
I hate this having to connect to cellphones. Half the time the app doesn't find gps and I waste so much time dealing with it rather than taking pictures checking location services, etc. And I'm often without wifi to reinstall the app. Or I get through the day and lose all my coordinates thinking it was connected.
I've had it with this. Don't force us to buy a super expensive GPS attachment or use cellphone app garbage. All the old canons and nikon point and shoots with built in GPS worked great. Why did you force this stupid cellphone thing? I don't want to have to rely on an additional device with an additional battery and functionality.
I am a fan of onboard GPS as well, but not everyone cares. For me, it is a nice feature and something I really liked about my 6D2. When I upgraded, I had already resigned myself that I wasn't going to have it any longer. 🙁 I'm not going to mount a GP-E2 for run and gun shooting and while I do often have a cell phone on me, it's not something I want to fuss with either.
