    I was wondering if anyone knew of a way of sharing the GPS device in my Dinc, so I can use it on mapping programs on my laptop, so I would need to register as a external comm device I think...

    I'e heard people can do it with the camera, so I was wondering if its at all possible to do it with the GPS...

    MOD please move to where you feel its good, I couldn't figure where to post it :)

    Thanks all

    thats an interesting thought. maybe there is a way that an app can take the GPS location data and send it over blutooth?
    i would be interested in this as well but i doubt i would have an actual use for it. the phone just does so well on its own as a gps unit.

    I would be using it for chart plotting and for location apps on my laptop... It would be handy for when I wanted a bigger screen and keyboard :)

    There's an app called blueNMEA. It requires root and has a bug in the lat/lon in the nmea data that may affect your position.
