    On my Galaxy S3 running 4.3, I could take a photo and if I had the GPS tags option enabled (it recorded the location obviously).
    I could then view the pics in gallery and then if I have the gps turned on I choose the get directions option and it would open google maps, and have the direction from my current location to the tags recorded in the picture.

    I cant seem to find this option on my Galaxy S5 running 4.4.2
    Has it been removed ?

    It will happily open google maps showing the location that the picture was taken but no facility to navigate to that location.
    I used to use this a lot, Is there a way to restore this or an app that will replace it, or to copy the coordinates to clipboard and drop them into google maps ?

    If it opens it up in google maps (but doesn't seem to offer a convenient way to navigate to it) could you try tapping and holding on the point or near the point on the map, and navigating to it?

    No tried that, but sorted the problem
    Downloaded an app called GPS Photo Viewer (Google Map) from the app store, does exactly what I need and more !
