Habe eben einen neuen GLO2 portable GPS  Sensor von Garmin mit meinem Samsung S10 und Locus versucht über Bluetooth zu verbinden. Funktioniert leider nicht: BT Verbindung bricht immer wieder ab.  >:( >:(
Mein altes Qzarz und das interne Google-GPS ist ok.
Werde es wahrscheinlich an Amazon zurückschicken. Auf der Packung steht made for iPhone, iPad, iPod !

Was genau bedeutet "nicht funktionieren"? Wenn die BT-Verbindung funktioniert und Locus Map den gültigen Standort nicht meldet oder den gültigen Standort wiederholt verliert, versuchen Sie bitte, eine NMEA-Nachricht (Einstellungen> GPS> NMEA-Aufzeichnung) aufzuzeichnen und teilen Sie sie mir mit, danke!

Good morning Menion
thanks for quick answer. Further evaluation says, that my S10 can not connect with GLO2 at all! It shows in my S10 display as connected, but the blue LED on GLO2 is still bliking. Focus
I think GLO2 is not useable with my S10 and maybe all other Androids. I will send it back to Amazon.
I am very sorry because I am looking for a new GPS BT for a better compagnon with my Locus pro, which is a great piece of software. I use it for many many years! Thanks for this great work.
Maybe you have a hint for a good modern BT GPS for Locus?

Hi, hmm .. I may suggest trying some BT GPS app from Google Play. Its developers should be more specialized in "BT stuff" so it may work better than Locus. Such apps are then able to share received locations to the Android system, so to Locus Map as well.

And GPS suggestion ... well, I've stopped to use BT GPS completely maybe 3 years ago. Precision of modern phones is amazing and my older Pixel2 has still precision the same as all basic BT GPS. And battery? Well, one small power bank solves most of the problems. I just think, that if you do not want to use some special ultra-precise GPS device, modern phones are more than usable. But ... no better suggestion sorry. I've used QStarz device, but not sure if they have any new devices available.

I am still using the old QStarz, which does not have Glonass and Beidou.
An extern BT GPS has the great advantage to carry it in your backpack or another good place (e.a. hut  :D) and the smartphone needs not to be always in heavenview position. Also it doesn't drain your phone battery.
Another drawback of intern GPS is, that my S10 Samsung flipcover stopps Locus traking when closes; see my other posting here in the forum.
So you see: I still am looking for a new modern BT GPS for my Locus.
