The Gps chip is unlocked.GPS uses the satellites..aGPS uses the towers to triangulate. If Google would program their maps to use the satellites then it will work..Its a programming blunder from Google.
If you think about it, it may not be a programming blunder. Maybe Google intentionally disabled external BT support on VZW devices since 2.2.3 since I don't believe that they omitted a fair amount of code during the 'upgrade'. maybe a lawsuit was threatened by VZW for Google circumventing their 'economic security'? But then again, who knows ...
