    I have all the settings I can think of set to allow location data on my iPhone photos. Photos automatically backed up to Google Photos retain GPS data.
    When iPhone is connected to my PC and transferred to Lightroom CC the GPS data is not in the EXIF data. All the other camera detail is present.

    I'm one of the people who are willing to manage my data and am aware that GPS data can be problematic.

    Any help or suggestions appreciated.

    Thanks

    Welcome to iMore! I don't have that issue. But I don't use lightroom on the PC either.
    First check to see if it's the phone.
    Use a 3rd party camera app like ProCamera +HDR. Here's what it shows.


    Or try the app View EXIF. It works great.

    This way you can tell if it's the phone or maybe lightroom deleting it.
    If photos backed up to Google Photos contain the exif data, then it's not the phone. I suspect it's on the computer.
