    Hi!

    Is it possible to buy a gps-transmitter that you i.e. can connect to your wallet or keychain, and watch where it is on a android app (map)?

    I tried to search the forum but didnt know what the right keyward was.

    If I understand you correctly, you want to use a GPS receiver to pinpoint your location. Then you can get something like this:

    Basically, you connect it to Android phone via GPS, then use a SatNav application, where you are able to select external GPS as your receiver.

    However, the phone and the GPS receiver should be in close distance (up to 10m) and such solutions are used typically in cars (I've used one with my old WinMo device).
