Default Sharing GPS output via Bluetooth

Please Login to Remove!

Is there any way to share the GPS in my Blackberry Bold 9000 (or later models) with an external device via Bluetooth?

I am a photographer and currently use a Qstarz Travel Recorder device which captures the GPS info and then passes that via Bluetooth to my Canon camera, which is fitted with their WFT-5 wireless receiver and a small USB Bluetooth card. This enables the photos to be geotagged with the long/lat data, etc.

It occurs to me that rather than carrying the Qstarz device, I could use the Blackberry, which is always with me anyway. I've managed to pair the two - but the camera simply reported that there were 'no supported services' and dropped the connection.

Any help or advice would be much appreciated. Thanks!
