How do I geocode my photos automatically for free?

Got my #GPS log, but can't find my software...

I have this GPS device, so I have a full log tracking our every move around Rome (apart from the times we were indoors or in fact anywhere near any kind of building at all, stupid GPS). BUT, I have lost the software! I want some more software that takes that GPS log, compares it to the timestamps of my photos and video, and mashes the two together. All the how-to's I've seen seem to be based on fairly primitive ideas of updating it all by hand...

Looks like I can do it with a free trial of http://pictomio.com, or maybe with http://gpsed.com but I'm not entirely convinced, and a trial is no long term solution anywhere... is there something good and free out there that will do this? If I could find the disk for Sony's "Image Tracker", that does the job just fine. Buying another new camera or a new GPS is no solution either. Anyone help?

Someone on flickr.com recommended geosetter, which seems to have done the trick so far. Will try jetphotosoft.com too, see which one works most smoothly... geosetter automatically tags images with the looked up name of the town and country nearest to your location, so my holiday photos are automatically tagged Lazio, Roma, etc...
