iBT-GPS Bluetooth GPS receiver ... Help !!
New to forum ( Great ! ) & newish to N95 ( even greater ! LOL! )
Just purchased a separate GPS receiver for the N95..... called iBT-GPS Blue tooth GPS receiver .... 51 channel.
Charged it fully, paired it with the N95 via blue tooth ( said it had paired Ok & is seen in current paired items ... has a rectangular box with a squiggle in it!) but despite many attempts can only get he item to stay in stand-by mode ( blue light flashing every 4 or 5 seconds on GPS module )
Instructions that came with it are very vague & mainly to set up a PDA via Windows.
Advert clearly says it will work with all phones via symbian or windows mobile operating systems.
HELP .... Please .... what am I doing wrong & do I need to do anything to either N95 or GPS to get the darn thing to work !!!!!!!!!!!!!

Go to G p s P a s S i o n there is a ton of information and a forum to ask there. You will get an answer I am sure. Very helpful.
Thanks Panther .... found out now how to get it to work !!
For those interested : Pair's up easily but once paired did not appear to want to use the blue tooth GPS....
Fiddled around & found a setting in one of the pages ( still trying to find which one as I came across it accidentally ) on this page it had 3 settings, you needed to put a tick next to the ones you wanted to use. 2 were ticked ( use internal GPS & another ... can't recall what it said ) but most importantly the top one said Use Blue tooth GPS .... I ticked this one & hey presto ... all works.
Went out for a drive & it is perfect .... the way to go for the N95 ... all for £30 inc P&P .... works 100% better & miles quicker at cold start on the satellites ( around 7 seconds compared to 2 mins with internal GPS )
One big happy puppy now ......
N.B Settings are: Menu/Tools/Settings/General/Positioning/Positioning methods/

Reason: Settings location info added.
No he means the positioning methods screen, use Bluetooth GPS.
