    Can BT GPS be used on N1

    New to smartphones but I was wondering if a BT GPS can be used instead of the onboard GPS? And if so, will it work with Google maps?

    I'm aware that BT devices can be paired with the N1 just not sure if BT device would work with the included maps. Only reason I ask is a matter of accuracy plus no battery drain on N1 for GPS services.

    I imagine accuracy is fine anyway.. Google base their own navigation app on it.

    BT GPS probably won't work without root level stuff but it doesn't sound too hard (the linux side supports it already.. it's just the interface to android that could be difficult).
