Use a bluetooth GPS receiver with apps like Maps and many others.
Using an external bluetooth GPS gives you better battery life and more accuracy. Ideal for geocaching and similar applications.
Please note: Not all applications will work. (e.g. Wikitude) If you find an app that isn't compatible please send me an email.

When you have problems connecting to your GPS try different connection methods from the settings. Some devices need a power cycle once the Bluetooth stack had problems (it's a good idea to pull the battery for 30 seconds).
Access precise location sources such as the Global Positioning System on the phone, where available. Malicious applications can use this to determine where you are, and may consume additional battery power.
false location sources for testing
Create false location sources for testing. Malicious applications can use this to override the location and/or status returned by real location sources such as GPS or network providers.

full Internet access
Allows an application to create network sockets.
view network state
Allows an application to view the state of all networks.
Allows an application to configure the local Bluetooth phone, and to discover and pair with remote devices.
