    Sharing 8800's GPS via BT with a PC?

    Advertisement



    I don't think this works (or is supported) but I figured I'd ask..

    Is it possible to share the GPS in the 8800's via Bluetooth with a PC (or any other device for that matter)?

    Would be nice to have the 8800 double as a plug-n-play GPS receiver.

    Thanks in advance

    Can't say for sure, but i'd be surprised if this can be done (easily). I would think the GPS unit in the device would only talk to the device itself. Given how recalcitrant (err spelling) some devices can be to talk to like a bluetooth headset, getting the gps to talk to another device thru bluetooth could be a nightmare.

    Could be wrong tho!

    Probably not without some sort of 3rd party app acting as a bridge using one of the existing BT profiles.
