Bluetooth GPS Provider

Bluetooth GPS Provider


Use a bluetooth GPS receiver with apps like Maps and many others.

Using an external bluetooth GPS gives you better battery life and more accuracy. Ideal for geocaching and similar applications.

Please note: Not all applications will work. (e.g. Wikitude) If you find an app that isn't compatible please send me an email.

Samsung Galaxy users using Android 2.2: Please toggle the internal GPS before using this app to avoid the phone from rebooting.

For a detailed review of the app and detailed descriptions of the settings visit http://l-36.com/bluetooth_gps_provider.php

The UI is simple to keep the memory footprint as low as possible. If you want to see NMEA data long-press the sat view.

When you have problems connecting to your GPS try different connection methods from the settings. Some devices need a power cycle once the Bluetooth stack had problems (it's a good idea to pull the battery for 30 seconds).

Had a Palm Treo but could I not use (FCC-mandated) GPS. Bought TeleNav BT-359. Still better than phones GPS! This is the tool to route it into "fake location."

The problem is that after installing your prog, and a couple of others, the Android phone find the GPS receiver, they do a successful pair, bot they are unable to connect. , blueGPS4droid says "Connection problem", Bluetooth GPS v0.5.9a by Googoo Android says "Service discovery failed", and your Bluetooth GPS Provider says "GPS problem". It seems that is impossible to connect. The GPS receiver works well with Visual GPS (installed latest version on Win7 Notebook).

Takes too long to sync Bluetooth GPS syncs up my Dual 150A instantly. This application, Bluetooth GPS Provider can take as long as 30 minutes to sync my Dual 150A on my Verizon tablet. It is not recommended.
