           Summary: Geolocation not working reliably
           Product: digikam
           Version: 2.0.0
          Platform: Ubuntu Packages
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: Geolocation
        AssignedTo: digikam-devel at kde.org
        ReportedBy: hadmut at danisch.de

Version:           2.0.0 (using Devel) 
OS:                Linux


I just tried the 2.0.0-beta5 of digikam to geolocate my Nikon RAW files. 

It does not work reliably, it does not find the geolocation for all pictures,
although the GPX file contains them. Even when taking pictures in fast
bracketing mode, it can happen that only the first is geolocated, but not the
other ones taken immediately after (and the GPX track does not have a gap). 

And, btw., when trying to apply the found locations, it always raises an error
message because it cannot write the GPS location to Nikon raw (it nevertheless
writes the location into the digikam database). There should not be an error
message because it never ever should modify a Nikon Raw file. 

Reproducible: Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:
Take a heap of pictures taken while carrying a Garmin eTrex and try to

Actual Results:  
between 20 and about 60 percent of the pictures are not geolocated.

Expected Results:  
guess what...
