Default Can I use my BB 8300 as a GPS receiver for my Ipaq?

Please Login to Remove!

Hi,

I have a shiny new BB 8300, with an internal GPS receiver.

Until now, I've been using a Ipaq 3870 with a cabled GPS receiver. What I would like to do is use the GPS receiver in the BB as a GPS puck and then use this as a bluetooth receiver for my Ipaq which is running Tomtom Navigator.

Is this possible?

Cheers,
Craig

Wirelessly posted (phoobia?)

Do you mean 8310?

8300 does not have gps.

As far as what you want to do I am not sure

Hi,

Yes, my apologies! It's an 8310.

What I would like to do is use my BB 8310 as a Bluetooth GPS receiver for my Ipaq.

Nope. The 8310 is only a receiver. It cannot transmit a GPS signal at all.
