    I have an old BT GPS receiver. Just curious if using BT to connect to a GPS device would eat batts worse than the built in GPS?

    Also, is there a way to get Google maps to toggle GPS automatically?

    Thx!

    I would say that the BT GPS will use battery faster than the internal. Also, just turn the GPS on and leave it on. It doesn't use power if an app isn't using it.
