    Hello, I was wondering if using an external Bluetooth gps antennae would work with ios4. Is there an API that would allow app devs to implement this? I know this works on a jailbroken iPod but I'm not sure if I want to do that.

    It's ok. It's just I got this bluetooth gps receiver really cheap on Ebay, and I would love to be able to use the geocaching application on the ipod touch. I don't know if I want to go through with jailbreaking the ipod, because of the stability issues this poses. But jailbreaking would allow me to connect this receiver and use any app that uses gps. I wish apple would allow this functionality!

    I just checked with my gps module and the ipod touch 2g with iOS4 does not detect the bluetooth gps OR the bluetooth keyboard. So I am still hoping the 4th gen ipod touch does this...
