Oh cool!

Did you have to install any other software to get the BT GPS working?

Hi Paul
I did download a couple of bluetooth gps apps. Now i am a little unsure what they do. I downloaded bluetooth gps provider and another called bluetooth gps - which has a nice satellite usee interface. I will try to uninstall them to see what really gets used.

Will let you know later

Neither of the above installed = no BT GPS ,, bluetooth section can see it but nothing seems to be able to use it .

Bluetooth GPS installed ---- will give you location in google but NOT in navigon software (well it doesn't on mine)

Bluetooth GPS Provider installed --- gives location in google maps AND Navigon so seems to be the better of the two (again for me anyway)

Hope this helps cos the vega makes a mean 10.1 inch satnav LOL

so i now have bluetooth gps provider installed and my trusty old BT GPS works like a charm thanks to all involved
