Eye-fi automatically write GPS data into JPEG file instead of separate XMP. When shooting with RAW+JPEG, is it possible to import RAW file and somehow extract or use the stored GPS data for the RAW file?

You may be able to use ExifTool to extract the metadata and import it to the raw's xmp file.

Another possibility is to write a custom script to do this, help on this might be sought from.

RawPlusJpeg will sync (gps) metadata from jpeg to raw (via xmp).

I couldn't get the RawPlusJpeg to work on the Mac. I installed the ExifTool.

****** ERROR #1: Unable to prepare xmp metadata for transfer - Unable to save metadata for RAW.CR2 because Non-zero exit code returned by command: "osascript" -e 'tell application "Lightroom" to activate' -e 'tell application "System Events"' -e 'key down command' -e 'keystroke "s"' -e 'key up command' -e 'end tell', exit-code: 256
