In order to get your Bluetooth GPS Receiver working with your Android device, you can utilize our GPSInfo Android App, which makes the external bluetooth receiver as your default GPS source.

Please install the GPSInfo Android App from here: https://market.android.com/details?id=com.globalsat.android.gps.bluetooth.provider
