    Why do we need specific iPhone GPS hardware? Whats wrong with using existing bluetooth ones? I'm sure a lot of people already have one and it would be a shame to let them go to waste. Also wouldnt you get better battery life from using a bluetooth device?

    tymchn:
    Everyone would use a Bluetooth one if it was possible.
    However ( at least for now ) Apple "forgot" to implement the neccessary protocol in its Bluetooth stack ( = driver ) to communicate with devices as a GPS ( = Serial com port ).
    And as rewriting a BT Stack is a major pain in the *ss people look for easier alternatives, see above...
    And its not iPhone specific, its a Serial GPS, the only thing specific is the port connector and a little level adjusting chip...

    Cheers for the clarification. I must admit I made a lot of assumptions on its capabilities when I read bluetooth as one of its specifications. I was only previously aware of its lack of A2DP support for stereo. I had hoped it had a more full implementation but perhaps its something to look forward to in later firmwares.

    Not as pretty as the other one, I admit - but it works! ;-)
