ComptonSoft just launched an application that brings GPS navigation to Nook Color (and presumably other Android tablets without GPS) not by using Bluetooth how it normally happens but by using WiFi tethering from your Android Phone."</em></p><p><img height="400" src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/adt/auto/1299885183.usr206.jpg" style="border: 1px solid #d2d2bb;" width="240" /></p><p>Got a Nook Color hacked to run full blown Android? Want to use it as your in-dash navigation system? Well now you can. The biggest problem with getting GPS connected to the Nook was the lack of Bluetooth but now software developer ComptonSoft has managed to get that GPS data piped across a WiFi connection from your Android phone to your Nook. Any of you guys out there with a modified Nook looking to give this a try?</p>
