Has somebody ever used the N9 with an external GPS device?
I am thinking to buying an external dedicated GPS receiver which will send the NMEA 0183 data over bluetooth to my N9 .According to the N9 specs this should work.
How ever I took my N900 and started the app "columbus" to emulate a GPS device. My android devices work finde to use it as external GPS device, how ever the N9 seems to to be able to use it. It connects fine and registers the N900 as the external GPS device. How ever it is not able to show any GPS data. In some apps, it even tries to use the internal GPS.
Now, before I buy an expensive external GPS device, could somebody confirm this works with a real GPS device?
