Good day Alzazadjali,

it depends, if your device may transmit data over Bluetooth and if, then which NMEA messages is transmiting. You may try it by enabling Bluetooth GPS in Menu > more > Bluetooth Manager.

I cannot say for sure because I do not know this device.


I'm just trying to say, that Locus Map is able to connect to Bluetooth GPS device, that send GPS data over NMEA messages. In this case, Locus Map is able to read these NMEA messages and display location on map.


Maybe this topic may be useful for you as well: http://help.locusmap.eu/topic/enhanced-gps-nmea-reader-functions . It's about second alternative where Locus Map is able to read special messages with locations.


I'm not expert in this area, but maybe it will be possible and I've forwarded you on correct way. Good luck.
