Geotag half works

    I love Geotag because of the simple ability to download Garmin tracks straight from the unit but...

    The EXIF data isn't being shared with other programs. (ExifTool is loaded)

    I load a photo, get the track and save it. If I close Geotag and re-open it, the GPS data (lat long) is still there.  But if I use to see the EXIF, the GPS data is missing. Which causes the photo not to map on either Google Earth or Panoramio.  BUT, if I'm in Geotag, I can click the image and it will map to Google Earth.

    So, the exif data is being written but not so all programs can see it.

    I tried the two suggested parameters in the Exif settings, but to no avail.

    What have I missed?  Any help is appreciated.  thanks

    ps... I tried 'GeoSetter' which does save the Exif so every other program can see it, but loading the GPS data is not as easy and fast as Geotag.

      My guess is that the program is writing to xmp files and not embedding the data in the actual photo.
