T he Taiwanese company ATP Electronics, founded in 1991, mainly aims at producing flash memory products. Besides memory cards, USB drives and card readers, ATP Electronics recently also produced the ATP Photo Finder. This GPS picture tracker calculates and registers your GPS position whilst time synchronisation links it to your digital camera, thus registering where and when a picture was taken. Picasa2, Google Earth and Google Maps software enable you to have a visual view of the geographic location the picture was taken. This free online application also allows for sharing your pictures with other people.

ATP GPS picture tracker


ATP GPS picture tracker
The ATP Photo Finder comes in four different colours; besides the green with black model we tested, black/white, white/black and white/orange versions are also available. The bright green part feels a bit like rubber. The black parts, used for the edges of the GPS Photo tracker, are made of plastic. The ATP Photo Finder features a 128x32 Dot Matrix FSTN monitor among other things, which puts this ATP a step ahead of the competition, since most GPS photo trackers lack a monitor. The monitor offers information about your position through coordinates and the current date and time. Besides the Photo Finder and the carbine clip, a mini USB cable and a quick user's guide in English are included in the package. The whole set is delivered in a simple cardboard box.




Photo Geotagging

Before being able to start your route and take pictures, the Photo Finder has to obtain sufficient GPS signal. This is an automatically generated process that you can't influence, other than the fact that you'd best go outside and find an open spot. Since the GPS antenna is placed on the left side, it is wise to keep this side up to try and speed up the reception of the GPS signal. As soon as the ATP Photo Finder obtained sufficient GPS signal, I synchronized the time of my digital camera with that of the GPS picture tracker. This way the GPS device is able to tag your pictures; meaning that it is capable of registering your route and remembering where and when the associated pictures were taken.

After capturing some pictures I inserted the SD card of my camera in the Photo finder. You are asked automatically whether or not you want to link the GPS data to the JPEG files. This is a fast and easy process. Read our complete GPS Photo tracker review!
