You can use a software-only solution, just sync the camera clock 
with the GPS as close as possible. I keep my camera on UTC to 
avoid daylight saving time headaches.

Then save all the photos in a folder, export the track as a GPX 
file and use the Digikam program with the kipi-plugins. Digikam 
is included with many GNU/Linux distributions based on KDE, may 
be also a live CD can have it.
