No GPS in DNG files after import

Hi all,
Recently I installed a camera app on my iPhone, allowing me to shoot Raw (DNG files). I have set Location Services on for the app and in the Camera Roll I can see photos taken with the app get a location. Yet, after importing them from my iPhone into LR (using the standard LR import function) all GPS data is stripped.
Does anyone know, what to do to get the GPS data imported as well ?

I am using Musecam.
I don't know this app. Is it possible that the app is storing the GPS data in it's own database and not inside the image?
You could try Lightroom Mobile, that does generate DNG's too (and the location information is integrated in the file)
