Can I use laptop connected to android phone for GPS
bayridge
I am not that technical, actually hardly technical at all. I want to use my laptop to navigate instead of my phone. I can plug both in and laptop has bluetooth. I figure the laptop screen is much bigger than phone so I can see it easier. The laptop has a touch screen also but no phone capability.

I was thinking maybe of using hotspot on phone to get online and then maybe use laptop that way.I have used laptop that way but not as a GPS.

I was also thinking about buying a GPS antenna for about $20 or $30 and using it that way if that could be done. Thanks.

Hi Bayridge,

Yes, it is possible. The phone will easily provide the laptop with the location data: http://www.laptopgpsworld.com/5767-use-your-smartphone-gps-antenna-receiver-your-laptop
