    GPS & Bluetooth?

    Advertisement



    I have decided I want to purchase one of those bluetooth GPS recievers to work with my Google Maps or BB Maps... but just before I hit buy, I had a question... If my bluetooth is linked to this new thing can it also be linked to my bluetooth speaker phone at the same time?

    If I am driving in the car can I have both working at the same time... or am I limitted to only one? Anyone please let me know.

    Thanks!!

    I know it works fine with a Bluetooth headset and a GPS puck.

    I have used BB maps but since it doesn't track as I'm moving I only use it as a route compareson to my garmin in my car

    I use a Jabra JX-10 and a holux 240 and have no issues. It returns to google maps when the call is done. You can always exit out of the call screen and return to your map program while on the call as well.

    Re: GPS & Bluetooth?

    Before I upgraded to 4.2.1.96, I noticed significance performance problems when both the headset (Jabra 250) and my GPS puck were in use at the same time. They both worked, but GPS was very sluggish. I haven't used both together since upgrading the OS.
