Anyone looked at the GPS coordinates stored in the photos yet?

Looking at both the details tab of the properties of the files (in Windows Explorer) and using a separate Exif Viewer addon for Firefox gives me the following info:
# GPS Latitude Reference = N
# GPS Latitude = 43/x,xxxx/xxx,x/x [degrees, minutes, seconds] ===> 43° xx.xx′
# GPS Longitude Reference = W
# GPS Longitude = 172/x,xxxx/xxx,x/x [degrees, minutes, seconds] ===> 172° xx.xx′   (numbers changed to protect the innocent)

The coordinates listed by the free app Geohash are correct though (showing -43°)

Obviuosly GoogleMaps app gets it right too, so i suspect it is just the photos app.

I read somewhere (a private mailing list I think) this is a known problem...

Have you notified Apple?

Not same issue but related to GPS... when I returned from Aus and still had AUS sim card in iPhone, I activated the GPS indoors (for first time since returning to NZ). It mapped my location to a small town in Denmark (maybe that's where I wanted to be right now ;-) ). I guess the network information was not working well without GPS LOS to satellite
