    Hi all!

    I already had a Keomo bluetooth GPS receiver...
    I thought since my iPod had BT enabled in 3.0, I could connect it and use it with the cydia app: GPS serial, which enables you to use ANY external GPS receiver.
    But when I search for devices, it isn't found.
    But, my phone DOES find it.
    Can someone please help me?

    Thnx!

    Yea, the iPod touch 2G bluetooth is very crippled at the moment. It only supports stereo headsets and peer to peer connectivity. (connecting to another iPod/iPhone).

    No right now, no. Just keep checking this website for future news on bluetooth development.

    Or the official iBluetooth Project site Here.

    i'm also waiting for a bluetooth connection to my BT GPS module from the ipod touch 2G.
    Damn Apple first disabling BT functionality, then enabling only a crippled version of BT for an extra upgrade fee.
    It 's with dirty tricks like these people should go back to standard PDA's with windows mobile and normal BT / wifi hardware buildin.
