    Has anybody noticed this before? I only noticed it after the Mac OS X 10.5 update.

    If you're running a Mac then use the Preview application to open a photo taken with your iPhone (2.0, 2.0.1, 2.0.2, 2.1). Location Services should have been on when the photo was originally taken. 1st Gen or 2nd Gen iPhone. Mine is a 2007 1st Gen iPhone.

    Once the photo is open in Preview on your Mac go to Tools > Inspector and all the EXIF data about the photo will be displayed.

    But there is a new section called GPS. A mini map of the globe shows where you were when that photo was taken. A link also appears which when clicked on opens Google Maps in your Mac web browser pin-pointing exactly where you were when the photo was taken.

    Nice, thanks for pointing this out. I just checked it out and it is a great addition.

    Now if they would add this same type of feature to the iPhone Photos app.
