There are apps for that. If you start a shooting session, the app records your gps location continuously and if you are ready shooting, you can synch the GPS data via time. Example: If you made a photo say at a gas station, the time you shot that picture will be synched with the time your phone was at that very moment. This is how you synch phone gps with pictures from your DSLR.
I'm sorry, I cannot recall the name of the app, since I sold my Camera a year ago and stopped photography atm. I dunno if Sony's own app does support that feature.

I use the GPS always and is working well. The GPS data is saved on the pictures, how will you do this later see at the mobile phone?

So try it and you will see how nice it is compare to adding anything manually. I use it all the time when trawelling.

Thought the same first, but tbh never used GPS in my other cameras anyways. I add it manually, or via APP (smartphone does a way better job in getting a GPS signal) for no cost, if I really need it.
Nevertheless, you are right, the a77 ii misses it, compared to it's predecessor.

No focus motor Won't autofocus with all lenses
BS. They do actually have the minolta motor.

Snapsort doesn't seem to be able or willing to keep up processing reported corrections in a timely manner. No GPS on ILCA-77M2 should have an effect on the outcome of this comparison. In my book, a huge disadvantage over its predecessor, although no deal-breaker...
