Geotagging with mac

Has anyone had any experience using the WG-1 or WG-2 GPS cameras with a Mac to geotag the photos. I am not sure if it is worth paying the extra for the GPS module?

If you have the GPS version, you don't need to geotag on your computer

The tracking feature is nice, I guess. Have you wanted my video review of the WG-2? It's on youtube and it touches on GPS functionality.

That's what is nice about having the GPS built into the camera, when the GPS is on, each photo is geotaged. The software that shows the image on the screen also needs to read the geotag.

(GPS probably won't work indoors)
