Using Mac laptop for bluetooth internet tethering
I am getting my internet now from my Mac Air computer using Open Garden. I thought there might be a way to pair the Mac with the Samsung Galaxy Gear and found a free program called Open Garden. This is my first post so I cannot paste the link.
By downloading Open Garden on both devices they will make a bluetooth connection and make internet sharing possible.
What I found is that some of my apps i.e. Beyond Pod, CNN, Browser, NPR News, Scanner Radio do work.
But my Google Maps, and Google Now Search, do not connect to the internet.
Please let me know if this works for anyone else.
Updated: Mar 31, 2014: I discovered that by enabling mobile spoofing this allows internet service to work for Google Maps and Google Now search. The only app that I use that doesn't work is Google Play. I can search for apps but cannot install them. P.S. I also installed Open Garden on my Galaxy Note2 and now I can use wifi instead of mobile data to connect the Galaxy Gear to the internet when I am at work or home.
