    Does anyone know if it is possible to output the gps info from the droid to pc/mac (either via the usb cable or bluetooth)? I use a marine navigation program on my laptop that can except nmea gps input.

    Thanks.

    Any luck with this? My weather program I use for storm spotting also only uses NMEA.

    Forget it. It is not possible.

    I remember a app called GPS Gate (or something like that) for windows mobile, you would download it on your phone AND your pc/mac and it would transmit the phones GPS data/NMEA to your pc/mac. I don't think anyone has made it for Android yet but if you contact the developers I bet they would consider it.

    There are a few gps data logging applications available on the market (I personally have My Tracks installed - it's from the Google team, but I've not yet really put it through the works). I don't know if any of them would output NMEA files, but if not, you could use an application like GPS Babel to convert the GPX to NMEA.

    Cheers, Carl.
