    hello all,

    currently there is a application being developed called "RoqyGPS", as you may have already guessed its for GPS connectivity.
    this isn't being developed by me though and you can request a beta from the developers site which is http://www.roqy-bluetooth.net/
    here is a video of it http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=91LBUyXdNqE

    also it should be released this month sometime!
    here is the current progress from his site:

    What is it ?

    An application to connect external bluetooth GPS antenna to your iPod Touch/iPhone

    It's working (Really!) on iPod Touch 2G with OS 3.0 and iPhone 3G/3GS with OS 2.x/3.0

    Status:
    The demo is working with ipod touch 2G and iphone 3G/S with Holux devices and others. Iphone 1st gen seems not to work correctly for the moment. I'm on it! Remember the beta does NOT inject YET GPS data in the iphone OS. External app are not working with it for the moment. It's for the public release!

    News:
    2009-08-21: One week break, no computer, no internet, paragliding! See you!
    2009-08-20: Good news! 3GS is working perfectly, thanks to Gerard for tests!
    2009-08-20: Sh..t, iphone 2G is still a mystery, chip is resetting in the middle of data transfert... where's the bug?! Does anybody has the CSR core4-ROM datasheet ?
    2009-08-20: Bad news guys. gpsserial team does not want to integrate my driver for business reasons... I'll need more time to get how inject GPS data in the OS. But this project becomes strong than ever thanks to you all !

    Yea, ive been following his progress over the past couple of weeks. Im hoping he gets the LAN one figured out and if im guessing right, he is talking about a DUN bluetooth connection with a cell phone. Would be awesome.
