The ATP GPS PhotoFinder Pro is a new device that allows you to geotag all of your photos. Designed for use with geotagging sites and software such as iPhoto, Flickr, Picasa3, Locr, SmugMug, Panoramio, Google Earth, and Google Maps and compatible with with more than 450 models of digital cameras, the ATP GPS PhotoFinder Pro provides easy geotagging without a PC or a need to go through complicated software installation processes. To use it, you first need to make sure there is no discrepancy between the time your digital camera is set on and the UTC time used by the Global Positioning System. Then all you need to do is take the PhotoFinder Pro along for the day’s shooting, then insert your memory card into the PhotoFinder Pro to geotag your photos. The MSRP is $119, and availability is slated for mid-July.

This looks like a good alternative to Nikon's over-priced GPS unit. I'm using a much cheaper technique with my iPhone - a $3.99 app called Geotag (by Salt 'n Pepper) that collects the GPS information and the free accompanying desktop app (Mac only) that tags the image files, works well for me.

Or our iPhone solution which includes a free Aperture plugin and free desktop software for the Mac, PlaceTagger. It automatically syncs with one's iPhone so it's easier for the average person, IMO. :)

Looks like everybody's using his iPhone these days for geotagging purposes. I went for the GeoLogTag app because I'm a Mac user and this app is especially powerful in combination with a Mac (and iPhoto's Places). No extra hardware or software required, GeoLogTag does it all.

FWIW I find breezebrowser's download pro the most efficient way of inputting geotags into my photos as I do it at the point of downloading, saves a step in the workflow.

Interesting that all comments here are for alternative products. A simple web-search on "ATP GPS PhotoFinder Pro" points to several GPS review sites that are uniformly unimpressed with this product.
