    Hi all,
    is there a way to simulate the GPS from the iPhone on a Touch 2G with FW 3.0 and the JB?

    I've sucessfully tested a standard serial GPS connected to the dock with xGPS.

    Maybe, we can use the new MobileNavigator from Navigon with such a solution on a Touch?
    Or better, with Bluetooth?

    What do you think about that?

    So long,
    MrFX

    Hi there,
    with simulate i mean that an external GPS looks like the internal on an iPhone to work with the navigation programs.

    Best wishes,

    the app "SerialGPS" will make the ipod think your gps unit is internal
