You need to have python installed (version 2.4 or upper if to want to use GPX files).

If you want to display your pictures using Google Map, you'll need a Google Map API key.

You MUST synchonise clocks between your GPS and your digital camera. Beware, track time is usually in UTC time, so either you put your camera at UTC time or you'll need to use the delta option.

This program may need exiftool which can be found here

If you are not using a Magellan Explorist, you may need GPSBabel to convert track files to GPX format.
