This camera captures images with good quality at a low price. The battery will be enough for about 2 hours of continuous use, so if you plan a longer session, make sure to think of extra power supply. GPS is not built into the camera, but you can capture geotagged photos by connecting the camera to your smartphone. For this, you will need the accompanying LG 360 Cam app.
Note that location precision will be just as good as the GPS accuracy of your smartphone. If you need high GPS accuracy, you should consider using an external GPS device to record the GPX track, which you can then use for geotagging the images.
Mapillary for iOS supports connecting to the LG 360 Cam so that you can use the Mapillary app to easily capture and upload photos. You will still need the LG 360 Cam app because that's where you enable WiFi on the camera and connect to the Mapillary app. Follow the full details on using a 360° camera via the Mapillary integration.
Mapillary for Android doesn't have external camera support yet, but it is possible to use the LG 360 Cam Manager app on Android to control the camera and geotag the photos. In the camera view of the LG 360 app, allow recording location infromation and change the mode to capture photos in interval (timelapse) mode, preferably 2-second intervals (the most frequent). Later, you can copy the images to your computer and upload the photos via the web uploader or scripts.
Be aware that recording geotags with the LG 360 Cam app can sometimes fail (the app “gets stuck” and assigns the same location for several photos). Therefore we strongly suggest that you record a GPS track on the side with another app or device, so that you can use this to fix the geotags of your photos if necessary.
