What you might be missing is that the right hand panel is for *viewing* the 
geolocation data of an image. On selection an image, the map view zooms in 
rather strongly (2 steps from maximum), so you only see a very small part 
of the map (and some parts of openstreetmap aren't all that detailed).

To *add* or modify geolocation data you would have to use the "Geolocation" 
item from the "Image" menu. In the geolocation window, you have again 
several right-hand tabs. For me, that window opens in the "GPS Correlator" 
tab. To edit details for an image, I have to switch to the "Details" tab, 
*and* select an image from the image list in the main panel (double click 
works). Once that's done, all fields become selectable/editable. (Don't 
forget to "apply" once you are ready to save the changes)
