    I couldn't find a direct answer after searching. I have a Freedom bluetooth gps receiver, and was wondering if I will be able to connect it to my Ipod to allow tracking while in maps (use Ipod as gps unit)? I know the new firmware is not out yet (soon I hope), but just wanting some thoughts or opinions.

    Thanks

    If it pulls from the Wifi connection on the device then transmits it VIA bluetooth, I don't think it would work but I'm not entirely sure. Nobody really knows much about what all Apple will be allowing VIA Bluetooth.

    someone might come up with a small 30pin connector thing that lets you use GPS on a certain app. who knows.

    No, the gps unit I have is connected via bluetooth. I used it on my old smart phone. Was curious if it will connect (bluetooth) to my 2g touch and track my position in the maps app. I know any answer is pure speculation at this time just wondering what popular belief was.

    Thanks

    hmm no clue if it will work in the maps app. if the manufacturer that made your gps unit makes a app for it then yes for sure it will work if they make a app designed for your reciever.
