Probably the best place to start is my travelogue from that trip to 


The parts about geotagging and such are "8.2. Global Positioning System" 
and "8.3. Geocoding", which are both near the bottom.  They are a bit 
light on details, but I had so little in the way of drama while doing it 
that I just haven't much detail to offer.  If that doesn't answer your 
questions, feel free to drop me a note and I'll answer as best I can.

The one thing that's not in there is that the Garmin software requires 
that you log in as an administrator user both to install their mapping 
software and to activate it (kinda like Windows Genuine Advantage) and 
associate it with a particular GPS device.  Or, they did when I last 
messed with that about a year ago.
