    I have a g tablet rooted and running TNT 4.0. I would like to be able to use the maps, navigation and other GPS dependent apps but have no blue-tooth devices to connect to...BUT I do have a GPS receiver that was purchased along with MicroSoft Streets and Trips 2010 - a Navation GPS 168 which connects via a USB connection. Is there any way that this receiver can be made to work on the g Tablet?

    I bought a Bluetooth GPS unit on eBay for $18. Works!
    Now, I need offline maps...

    if you are running CM7 it is supposed to be working. It isn't worth me giving up my honeycomb to try it
