I did this, it works great. The best software I found (free) is from a semi-abandoned Microsoft Research project called WWMX. Get their "location stamper" utility.

Give it a .GPX file from your GPS unit, then give it a bunch of pictures and it will add the location into the EXIF. Does backups of pics if you want -- gives you several options on how to deal with pics that don't match any obvious point in the gpx file.

The solution of this problem is trivial and is left as an exercise for the reader.

Working...
