Just to prove that it can be done.   Here is a GPSd client running on a mobile device.

I'm just getting the raw stream of NMEA data out of the GPS (which is the whole point of GPSd).   Obviously the client can then use this data for its own purposes.

To make the example shown work,  I have laptop connected to home wireless network and in turn connected to GPS via BlueTooth.

The Windows Mobile device is also on my wireless network and picks up the GPSd server running on the laptop.

The fun part of the demo, is that for the GPS to work (I'm using a Holux Gr-230xx)  it has to have line of sight with the sky, so the GPS has to sit outside in garden. Brrrrr....
