BlueGps

Connect a GPS via bluetooth

Allows the connection of an external GPS tracker/mouse via bluetooth, injecting the location data as a “mock provider”. This can provide more accurate location than the build-in receiver (very useful for tracking in dense areas or in the woods, esp. for small tracks or streetaddresses etc), as well as make it possible to use GPS inside a car/boot, where the GPS receiver is mounted outside to get better reception.

Packages

Although APK downloads are available below to give you the choice, you should be aware that by installing that way you will not receive update notifications and it's a less secure way to download. We recommend that you install the F-Droid client and use that.
