Im trying to enable GPS tethering for Google Maps and I need to select "Allow Mock Location" in setting some where. Can you please help me locate where in the Gear this can be located?

its under the developer settings - which is hidden unless you unlock it - . while on the desktop (using Nova launcher) to get the developer settings, go into settings, about gear, then tap build number about 5 times to enable developer options. go back to the previous screen (still under settings), then scroll down to 'developer options', tap this and look for allow mock locations

Got it! Thank you so much. Now I got turn-by-turn navigation!

Edit: Gear cant seem to do turn-by-turn but general maps features are supported and work fine.

Do you have to be on Internet Tether to accomplish this? and I'm assuming you just installed Google Maps to the gear?

Bluetooth transfer the APK from your phone to the gear. It is the easiest way, I have found to transfer amd install files.
