Thanks Foxbat121. Using the airplane mode was the easiest and fastest way to disable GPS stamp on photo.

With Froyo, the only way to do that is turn off GPS before you take the photos. There is no settings in camera app to disable that. The old 2.1 firmware let you configure that in camera app.

It probably getting it from cell tower or wifi. Try disable network locations in the phone settings.
