Challenges

To implement the Geo tagging feature with this black berry compatible product is challenging task of this application.

Solution

The base for Geo tagging is positions. Position is derived from the global positioning system, and based on a latitude/longitude-coordinate system that presents each location on the earth in a coordinate spanning from 180° west through 180° east along the Equator and 90° north through 90° south along the prime meridian.
