If you want to save GPS data to your images but don’t have a GPS device or camera that will automatically embed GPS data to your images, then why not use your smartphone? By creating at least one photograph with your smartphone (assuming it embeds the GPS data, just like most iPhones and Android devices will do), you will be able to take that location information and sync it to your other images with Lightroom.

Disclaimer: This is just one way to work with GPS data and your images.
