    I've heard that the ipod touch 2g has bluetooth inside that can be utilised fully by jailbreaking. Is it possible to use an external gps reciever via bluetooth with the tomtom or other gps app?

    I've got the gps receiver from a previous tomtom kit i bought for my hp handheld pda and was thinking of buying the tomtom app if i can get it working.

    Thanks for the help.

    The TomTom kit is supposed to be compatible with the touch, so for it to not be fully utilised seems a bit strange.
    Maybe the 3G will have an integrated GPS receiver, with an add on being released for the 2G. Let's hope so :).

    the bluetooth can not be utilised as a gps it can only communicate with other bluetooth devices. GPS communicates with satelites to show your position, if the reciever is bluetooth it may work but if it is a plugin reciever then it will have to be the same connection as the one on the USB wire
