Default Using a Bluetooth GPS Device

Since my GPS works like crap i decided to try my bluetooth GPS receiver that i used with my old Blackjack. It would pair up with the Captivate but not connect. I read that the Captivate does not support a serial bluetooth connection (something like that). I downloaded an app from the market call Bluetooth GPS Provider and now it connects perfect. Navigation works perfect as well. This is my temp fix for now...
