What's new in this version (0.7.5a):

- bug fix
- fix problem that the Play Store filtered the app for some devices.

Description

Connect to an external bluetooth NMEA compatible GPS device. Mock provider allows other apps (Google Maps, GPSStatus, RMaps, OruxMaps, NDrive, c:geo ...etc) to work with the device.

### I always receive questions about how to use this app to connect their Notebook or PC, Mac ...etc. I have to clarify that the purpose of this app is to connect the Android with an external Bluetooth GPS device, in order to "replace" the android's internal GPS.

### Please understand that the app frontend is just a frontend, mainly for controlling and configuration purpose, and providing some handy info. so don't expect it has many functions, shows every details and in any desired format...etc.

**** Please first enable Allow Mock Locations in Setting ****
* can't guarantee all device+apps work, pls email me details :)

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

!!! for Samsung Galaxy S/Tab or similar Samsung devices, please first turn on the internal GPS before connecting, may CRASH otherwise. Please note this before you leave a comment about crashing your device !

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


==========

Now you can start/stop the service from other apps by sending the service or broadcast Intent :

Start - googoo.android.btgps.action.SERVICE_START
Stop - googoo.android.btgps.action.SERVICE_STOP
Toggle - googoo.android.btgps.action.SERIVCE_TOGGLE

* Note: You should first make sure you setup all the preferences and you can start the service correctly through the GUI frontend.

* try the workarounds (in preference) if failed to connect (eg, service discovery fail, connection refused)


Please report error or send me logcat if you got FC or any problems.

Shows a zero date/time with my popular BT-338 (which does sends RMC). This may be the cause of the mock malfunction in Google maps and others.
