    I had been using the Olympus image share program on my iPhone and iPad (mini) when I noticed a strange addition on the camera screen. After geotagging the images a small image of a satellite comes up on the screen at the upper right section which I have previously seen on my Sony geotagged images.
    It had me wondering why it's there as OI share came a lot latter than the ep5.
    No mention in the manual, but that's not surprising.

    I'm pretty sure when they initially announced WiFi it was for a) remote shutter and b) geotagging. They did add enhancements to improve things like remote manual exposure control so maybe this was added later too.
