My phone has lousy GPS connection. I have an external Bluetooth GPS device which connects to my phone. Can i make TomTom work with that device instead of my internal GPS?

    I have done it the past but not with my current phone. I think I also had to use an app. I'll try to unearth the info. You could start by searching external Android GPS connection.

    Thanks. I already installed the app. And it's working fine with my BT GPS receiver. But how can ik make TomTom use this BT device? When i stop the onboard GPS in Android (Location) and start TomTom it notices Location is off and asks to put it on. When i ignore it, i do not have a GPS fix (as expected...). In the old days there was option in TomTom to determine the GPS device, but this is not an option in the Android version.
