Unfortunately, our GlobalSat Bluetooth GPS receivers are not compatible with Ipod Touch/IPhone because Apple “locks” their products to have end users only purchase Apple certified accessories. Even the Iphone/Ipod Touch support the Serial Port Profile (SPP), our BT receivers are not allowed to communicate with them.

Thanks :)

Found this app to unlock Bluetooth Stack on iPod Touch/iPhone
(Note the phone or touch has to be Jailbroken)

Welcome!
You want to connect your iPod Touch / iPhone to a GPS bluetooth device, but it does not work? Apple does not provide this functionality by default, roqyBluetooth will help you!

What is roqyBluetooth?

roqyBluetooth (aka roqyBT) is a complete bluetooth stack which is taking the control of the bluetooth chip in your device over the official bluetooth. You can keep your official bluetooth off, roqyBluetooth works in parallel! roqy team provides all the software components (roqyGPS) to connect your iPod Touch / iPhone to a GPS « mouse »!

roqyBluetooth is available on Cydia and Rock package managers for jailbroken devices (search roqyBT).

Make sure that the said software is NMEA compliant. Also, can you please provide some details about the TMC device? Like specs or datasheets? Any screenshots or links?

The more details you provide, the better for us to understand your inquiry. Thanks.
