    I copied over several geotagged pictures and noticed I can choose display in map from the gallery viewer, however when i do that the location gets moved to a street address even if its a long way from the trail I was on. My Garmin GPS has an option to lock to street or not, any way to do this in Andriod?

    No, it just drags the map around. I see it say searching for the coordinates but then it moves to a street address. Take for example 39.9458° N, 83.0098° W and put it into maps.google.com . Notice there is a pin on W whitter street and the arrow slightly below it on te tiny pathway there. The phone displays the one on whitter street only, seems to be an issue with google.

    maybe you need "tracks" by google. I am just guessing as I have 9 more days untill I have a Droid in my hands.

    tracks lets you log the gps coordiantes. This is after that, I've used a gps log and software to add the coordinates into the pictures.
    Look at the pictures here, you can see how they appear off the roads and actually on the trails. When I view the pictures on the phone that were uploaded to this site the coordinates are correct but google maps moves them over to the nearest road.
