AFAIK it's not supported.

Unless your BT GPS device A) provides a virtual comport on your computer, B) the virtual comport is set to the correct bps speed, and C) is set to NMEA, you can't use your BT GPS as input for NetStumbler.

With your intermittent shift key you probably missed a capitol letter required in your configuration. It could also be a spelling issue in your config.

Would that be in the gpsd.conf file? ;)

No, it's in the Luser_init.brain file.

I configured sucessefully my tomtom bluetooth gps to apear on Netstumbler, only had to config the bluetooth gps port wich was com7.
Used fujitsu amilo si 1520, asus wl500gp and the internal bluetooth from the laptop, after testing i forgot my gps out of the window and it rained a lot that night, in the morning i opened the window and there it was, turned on and was working :D
Lovely software to analise networks and see the signals, i must read more because there´s some other softwares wich work with Netstumbler

There ain't much point in looking at Signal's since you're using an unsupported card.

You also should run immediately to the Welcome Desk and read all the posts there so that you don't make similar mistakes in the future.

When I was your age, television was called books. And this is a special book. It was the book my father used to read to me when I was sick, and I used to read it to your father. And today, I'm gonna read it to you.
