Built-In GPS for Geotagging
The A99’s built-in GPS feature tags your photos with global positioning data that indicates where and when they were taken, so you don’t have to. When you view tagged photographs on a PC installed with PMB software, or on a connected BRAVIA TV with its Photo Map function, the photos are displayed on a map to indicate where they were taken. A highly sensitive antenna in the camera ensures clear GPS reception wherever your photography takes you.
