I have a TomTom GPS with bluetooth. My ipod touch also has buetooth.
Is it possible to link them so I can use the GPS signal on my ipod?

From what I remember the iphone cradle isn't compatable with the iPod as tomtom done one specifically for the iPod. Could be wrong but check tomtoms site

If you have your ipod touch jailbreak, you may try an app called btstack gps from cydia. It will cost you 5$, but it works fine with my dell bt gps.

BTW, will the new ipod touch get GPS?

Anything is possible. Buy a Mac, get a developer license, start programming. I'm sure it is possible. On the other hand, for a reasonable price, with reasonable usefulness? No.

No. Would need the bluetooth serial data profile, Apple doesn't support this on iOS devices.

Jailbreak is mentioned a few posts up, only hope.
