    Hello all,
    I have a iPod Touch 5 Generation and up to version 7 of IOS, the internal GPS has never given me any kind of problem.
    Unfortunately, following the update to IOS 9, I started to have many problems with the GPS, in particular, I started having problems with applications such as RunKeeper or Runtastic.
    I would like to use an external GPS antenna via Bluetooth and I wanted to understand if there were problems, but above all I wanted to know if the ipod in this case, IOS 9, accept the communication via Bluetooth.
    Do you think there are problems ?

    There is no internal GPS in either the 5th or 6th Gen. iPod Touch.

    I guess he means the WiFi based location systems.

    Thanks to all for the response.
    But what I don't understand is that before the update to version IOS 9 for iPod, the application Runtastic gave me a lot of time in line with the race.
    After the update, instead, the times have changed completely, while using an iPhone 4S, which from what I understand, it should have the internal GPS, the times are the ones that I did with the iPod before the update to IOS 9.
    I don't understand how it can never be a success.
    A problem with the Runtastic app ?
