Just want to confirm that Locus adds GPS info (geotags) to Add new point (camera) photos independe
I have my Android camera app GPS setting to "Off" (I don't routinely want to geotag photos.) But when I used Add new point (camera) in Locus, I see the coordinates in the resulting photo properties. So I am just confirming that I can leave the camera GPS setting Off and still have Locus tag the waypoint photo with coordinates, which to me is a good thing.
A couple of other tests:
When I next turned the camera GPS setting to "On", a subsequent Locus waypoint photo now also included Altitude info. So perhaps the camera app overrides Locus if On?
I also checked photos I took using Google MyTracks similar feature. Discovered that MyTracks requires the GPS camera app to be "On" in order to record coordinates in the photo EXIF. When you view the photo "marker" it shows lat/long in the display, but this is not embedded in the photo unless your camera GPS was also On when you took the photo.
