On my system, everything is working fine. Could you please create a 
bugreport for this problem so that we can track information? That would 
be great!

A few additional questions:

- which map system are you using - Marble or Google Maps?
- in your digikam settings, have you enabled writing metadata to files?
- which types of files are you having these problems with? Raw files or 
jpeg? If raw, should metadata be written into the raw file or into a 
sidecar file?
- in Geolocation, set the coordinates for an image, apply them and then 
look at the image in digikam with the GPS properties tab. What does it show?

Thanks for reporting this issue, I hope we can resolve it...
