    Default Bluetooh GPS Dongle to Map onto Google Map?

    Does such a piece of software exist?

    The idea is that a bluetooth GPS Dongle like this one
    http://www.freedominput.com/site/ind...d=96&Itemid=81

    can communicate the GPS coordinates to google maps. Google maps then uses EDGE to update it position constantly as you move?

    As of right now its not possible. Maps does not support GPS devices, right now if you use the Navizon aGPS application it gets around this by simply cutting and pasting the quadrants in the search bar.
    So the iPhone bluetooth stack does not support the required serial interface for pairing with a generic serial device, nor does the Maps application support using the GPS data in the manner you require.

    You can retrieve latitude and longitude from GPS as well.
