ATP GPS receiver test

The ATP GPS Photo Finder Mini has a compact size, as the name already reveals. The rectangular black lack design of the body feels like plastic and is extremely light when it comes to weight. The carbine clip makes it ever so easy to attach this GPS device to your trousers. And thanks to its light weight, 40 grams, you don't notice the GPS device dangling down there. Besides the GPS device itself, a multi-functional docking station is included in the package. And that is not all, also a battery charger with USB connection and users guides in both paper version and CD format are included.

Nowadays, geotagging is general knowledge. With the use of geotagging, GPS information of your pictures can be gathered and stored. In other words: where and when did you take a picture? Afterwards, the geographic locations of where exactly the pictures were captured can be viewed online. No need for software, since online applications such as Picasa, Flickr, Panoramio, Locr and Google Maps offer the solution. And the ATP GPS Photo Finder Mini takes things one step further: also the route you took can be stored, and viewed through Google Earth afterwards.

After I had put the pictures on Google Earth, I saw to my astonishment that the location of the pictures I captured deviated tremendously from the actual location. The GPS signal was not the cause, since the matching route was almost precisely how I walked. A technical software problem perhaps, that will probably be solved with a firmware update. It is nice though to find that the newly built-in function, to also store the route, is already thought-out this well.

Now that we have thoroughly studied the GPS tracker and all of its accessories, it's about time to take the GPS photo tracker and hit the road. First of all, you have to make sure the digital camera's time is set accurately. The GPS device does not require this. Make sure you take pictures in the JPEG format, since other formats are not supported by the ATP Photo Finder Mini. Continue to read the full ATP GPS receiver review at LetsGoMobile.
