    Don't know if any of this will help you but...

    1. Missing GPS metadata is not exactly "totally ruined photos"
    2. You can easily add GPS coordinates using variety of software tools out there. I use Lightroom but GeoSetter seems like a good free sw.
    3. There's an open bug for missing GPS metadata for DNG files. In my experience with 950, JPGs are fine but your mileage may vary with the XL.
    4. If GPS metadata are missing in your JPGs despite proper settings on your phone, that would be a bug in the Camera app, not Photos.
    5. Photos app sometimes fails to display GPS map under "Info" screen even when GPS metadata is present. In that case, your JPG files are fine.

    What TK2011 said, missing GPS metadata shouldn't be the end of things, unless you're saying your photos are all gone, again?

    Did you ever replace your SD card, say with a Lexar, or something solid?

    While my phone consistently creates formatting errors on my card (which I've checked a couple of times, no errors outside of phone with surface tests), it doesn't lose photos. It's VERY slow to read them from the phone via USB though, crazy slow, like others have mentioned...
