    Idea, bluetooth gps emulation

    Hi!

    This is my first post here so an short introduction wouldn't hurt anyone My name is Robin Nilsson, 21yrs, sweden. I'm interested in programming in all areas, but is a total newcomer in mobile development.

    Since most and many of the navigation software available today (tomtom etc) doesn't support the built-in GPS, for example N95, my idea is a bluetooth gps device emulator for such devices.
    What do you think? I suppose there is ready to use Python s60 modules that allows one to interact with the GPS, but how about "bluetooth device emulation", is it even possible?

    If so is, i'm ready to get working right away


    Thanks in advance!

    //Robin

    hi hexagon
    first of all a great welcome to you in the fantastic python dibo.
    ur idea is great but instead if we can make something in pyhon itself which will provide all the functionalities of GPS software. and i think u can try that sort of thing as many support is available.
    plz give ur feedback
