    For those that have GPS in their phone, but not on their tablet the following will let you share your phone's capability via Bluetooth.

    You must have a rooted phone with GPS.

    1. Download ShareGPS Beta from the market and install on your PHONE <- This goes on the device that has GPS (MUST be rooted)
    2. Pair your phone with your tablet
    3. Activate ShareGPS on your phone.

    This makes your phone a shareable GPS device.

    4. Download BlueGPS4Droid_1.2.0.zip from this post
    5. Install this on your tablet
    6. Start Bluetooth on tablet
    7. Connect to your phones GPS

    Tested with Google Maps, Google Nav and Google Skymap.

    Cheers,
    p

    Your Freescale doesn't have BT? BTW, how are you liking CM6.1 on the DINC? I ran it for a bit but am now loving on the DincROM 1.0.
