[TIP] Connecting an iPhone or an Android device to a Bluetooth GPS

For those who want better GPS performance than what can be offered by the built-in GPS module of a smartphone or tablet due to the design constraints (no room for a decent GPS patch antenna and RF interference galore), you can connect to an external Bluetooth GPS for free with the bluegps4droid application.

Tested and approved with a Qstarz BT-1300 Bluetooth datalogger and the 7" Witstech A81. More details in the bluegps4droid to connect Android to Bluetooth GPS topic in the forums on GpsPasSion.

There also an iPhone/iPad application called font color=green>RoqyGPS but it costs $8 and it require a JB device.

Updated August29th, 2005 - It took longer than expected to make it to us, but the end result, the Bluetooth Battery Adapter, is convincing and will suit those who need a GPS for rough environments but still want to connect it easily to a PDA or PC for...

... access to more detailed maps. More pictures and details in this thread of the forums.

After the bluetooth iTrek add-on offered by Semsons last year that added Bluetooth to Garmin receivers but required a DC input, PC-Mobile have come up with a solution that is battery powered. You can read about it here.

A quick update to this news item to point out that the whole Garmin GPS receiver family (or almost as the Forerunner/trek are missing) now has access to Bluetooth connectivity - more details here

While Garmin are still not adding Bluetooth as a way of connecting to their GPS receivers, Semsons...
... (a GpsPasSion Club member) are filling the gap with their Bluetooth Car Charger to bring Bluetooth to the eTrex family of receivers (...)(...) Not only does it let you connect to an eTrex wirelessly, it will also power the eTrex for long car or boating trips. I have been testing a unit for a few days and it's a snap to set-up. Just connect the eTrex, set it to output NMEA, discover the BT device and you're good to go!
