    I tried a few of the GPS provider apps to get my Nexus 7 to work with a couple bluetooth GPS receiver,a generic one, and a DUAL XGPS150, and most apps are working fine- the ones programmed to accept BT GPS data. I had the best success with the one from GG moblab and de.mobilej.btgps. If you use 2 receivers, then you have a different problem: you can't just switch over to the other receiver. You need to un-pair, re-pair, then switch over.

    Apparently, some applications cannot use the information from a mock location app, or the System needs certain settings to changed properly.

    Can anyone share their advice to properly set up the Nexus 7/13 to use a bluetooth GPS receiver? ThxZ

    After using both GPS receivers for a few days, things started working more predictably; I could just turn off one receiver for charging, and turn on the other, then just open the BT application and select the other receiver. I could not figure out why I needed to un-pairone and pair the other.
