Hi @GCS88;

 

The geotag/map function of the Album app was removed in the last app update, as announced by Sony.

Well that it was such a nice feature! My xz1 is also suffering from slow actions on the photo app, when I take a photo it takes time before it appears same as when I'm deleting them.

Re: Photo Geotagging feature gone

Hi @GCS88, sorry to hear about the device being slow at handling photos.

Are you saving and deleting the photos from an SD card or are they stored on the internal storage? If you are using an SD card, try and temporarily change the data storage to the internal storage > snap a few photos and try deleting them. You can change this setting if you open up the camera application > tap the cogwheel in the top right corner > Data storage > Internal storage.

This will tell us if these actions are only slow for when saving/deleting photos that are on the SD card or if this is also affected when using the internal storage.

Let me know if that helps!
