GPS gets everywhere. The rise of the smartphone has helped in this with the myriad of location-based apps that are available. Whether hunting down your local McDonalds, locating your friends, getting speed camera warnings, viewing Wikipedia facts as augmented reality over your view of a cathedral or simply taking a photo on a smartphone, GPS sticks its oar in.

We got hold of Nikon's GPS-enabled COOLPIX AW110 digital camera to test just how well it works.

Hello. I found your review about the Nikon Coolpix AW110 GPS feature (Nikon COOLPIX AW110 GPS-Enabled Digital Camera, June 13th, 2013) very complete and helpful. I have one problem. I have the camera Nikon Coolpix AW110 and when using the POI feature I get all the right information in the camera screen. Both in the shooting and the playback screens. I got the time, date, latitude and longitude as well as the POI (name of the place) in a very accurate way.The problem is that the POI information is not transferred onto the picture. The rest of the information is perfectly transferred into the picture but not the POI. There's a setting "DATA IMPRINT" that transfers all the information to the picture but not the POI. I got the POI settings POI EMBED and POI DISPLAY set to "ON" and it displays the POI but not emded it onto the picture. When the pictures are imported to the laptop using the NX2 software, all the information except the POI is embeded in the picture.
Can you help me with this?
I contacted the Nikon support in USA and they didn't know.
Thanks a lot.
Dr. Fernandez (Tony)

Not sure. I never imprinted the poi data into the picture itself. However the mac version of the software did transfer it over and store it in the EXIF data of the file.

Do you mean you want the poi name actually printing onto the photo? If so then I would assume this needs to be added to the cameras software/firmware in an update from Nikon themselves.

Sorry I can't help you any more than that!

Hello,
I want to add to my previous e-mail in reference to my query that the people from Nikon told me that the information about the POI cannot be imprinted onto the picture. It will be a little unusual to have an information on the picture that is not so easy to understand. When you look at a picture sometime after it was taken the latitude and longitude information is not as clear as Paris, New York, Hyde Park, London, etc. Also if it was not intended to be imprinted onto the picture why having the “EMBED” option together with the “DISPLAY” and not just the “DISPLAY”. It’s really strange that all the information is embedded except for the POI.
Thanks
Tony

My question again is:
The information consists on five lines, then why imprinted the first four and leave the final out?
I have a PC.
My doubt is why exclude something that’s already there. It’s not a case of a software adding information.
Do you think that the camera software was intentionally designed to exclude the POI from imprinting?
Why the EMBED On not for the GPS but specifically for the POI?
Sorry for being impertinent but your article was excellent and you’re very smart and knowledgeable. You’re a prestigious professional in the field and maybe NIKON will give you an explanation that low-level technical support people couldn’t give me.
Thanks again

Very good review of the product. I did something similar when I got mine running to learn all the features and functionality. One thing that I noticed is that the GPS log stops logging when the video capture is active. I was wanting to overlay the log information and video in a rendering tool and since they stop the log you cannot do it. If you have seen anything different let me know as this is causing me to generate seperate GPS information with another device in order to get the complete video with a maps integrated together.

I only had it for a few weeks and had to send it back. So it's not something I can test I'm afraid!
