The company made a change to their software, let me see if we can obtain the older copy. In the mean time, follow the instructions for the WiFi version, this works flawlessly.
As promised, we got you several choices to try on the Kindle - be sure you enable Mock Location (on the Kindle) per the instructions.
***WE HAVE NOT HAD TIME TO TEST THESE APPS - WE USE THE PREFERRED METHOD***
First attempt to install the app, if the install fails, move the from the /sdcard/Download folder to /system/app and change the permissions to: User: Read Write Group: Read and Others: Read - reboot and test each application. If the app fails to work, go back to /system/app and remove the application.
Step 2.1: Download and Install Googoo Bluetooth GPS (Alternative Method)*: Googoo Bluetooth GPS App (Dropbox) or Googoo Bluetooth GPS App (Ubuntu One)
Step 2.2: Download and Install Mobilej Bluetooth GPS (Alternative Method)*: Mobilej Bluetooth GPS App (Dropbox) or Mobilej Bluetooth GPS App (Ubuntu One)
Step 2.3: Download and Install Turboirc Bluetooth GPS (Alternative Method)*: Turboirc Bluetooth GPS App (Dropbox) or Turboirc Bluetooth GPS App (Ubuntu One)
*These apps are designed to connect a Bluetooth GPS Device to the Kindle Fire like the Dual XGPS150A - the 3 apps are NOT designed to connect a phone GPS to your Kindle Fire.
Thanks for the quick response, however I have a question.
My mobile is blackberry curve, and does not support tethering (gggrrrr!!), hense the 'hope' that bluetooth connection via phone would work. I assume from your response this is not possible, or I am having a noob moment here??
I'm having some weirdness with the bluetooth apps on my KFHD 8.9.
- GooGoo bluetooth would not install from either /sdcard/download or from /system/app.
- turboirc.btgps.apk installed. But I lost the pull-down menu (necessary to enable bluetooth, etc.) and the bottom nav menu - they are enabled for about second after boot, then they 'autohide' and are no longer available. Other apps work fine, but it's difficult to get back 'home' without a reboot.
- mobilej installed as well but also killed the menus.
Mobilej does have a 'settings' prompt that activated when it determined that bluetooth wasn't enabled, so I was able to enable the bluetooth radio from the app. I am able to see the TomTom MKII bluetooth GPS, and can enter the GPS' ID number when attempting to connect, but get a 'not compatible' error
Two questions - anyone know the app in /system/app that I might be able to run to regain the menus? Is there an app or file or database one can access to uninstall an app without access to the pull-down menu?
Sigh...time for another complete restore.
Damn software developers! Why do they have to make apps that beak devices! I am removing the Bluetooth option since it clearly does not work.
Sorry it had to be you! The software must have added something to the build.prop - can you get to Google Play Store? If yes, download and install build.prop Editor then open the editor and look at the last lines, it will be obvious what has been inserted. I have attached an original HD 8.9" build.prop to this response.
If I understand you correctly, you have removed the software, and since the removal you have lost the status bars, correct? Using ES File Explorer, take a peek at the /system/ folder, do you see a file named build.bak or something like this name? If yes, there is the backup build.prop.
Alternative Method: Purchase Root Explorer from the Play Store here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...e.rootexplorer
ALT Step 1: Use Root Explorer and SQL Lite Manager to open /data/data/com.android.providers.settings/databases/settings.db
change 'mock_location' from '0' to '1'
