Bluetooth and GPS   
I got a ride home with my friend just this afternoon because my car was being repaired. I got fascinated with the GPS device that she has on her car because she was able to use it as some sort of receiver for calls. I wanted to ask her a lot of details about it but the only answer I got was that it works through Bluetooth. I got a bit shy to ask her how exactly that is possible so I’m here to ask you guys about it. I want the one I have in my car to work that way too but I checked the manual and it does not say anything about it. Please help…

GPS Bluetooth Compatible
For some GPS devices this could work through a simple application. The connection for your phone and your GPS device will be through Bluetooth. Just like how things work when you have a Bluetooth headset connected to your mobile phone, you can also use your GPS device as a receiver for calls. It is actually great because it is safer when it come to receiving calls especially when you are driving. For some high end GPS devices, the caller’s information and notification will also be displayed on your GPS device.

Not All Bluetooth Devices is Compatible with GPS
Just to add to this discussion, I would like to emphasize that not all GPS devices have Bluetooth built in. So before you get the application, might as well check you devices first. I also do not want to burst your bubbly but apart from that, sometimes it can also get a bit difficult to make your mobile phone work with your GPS device because of compatibility issues. Sometimes they simply do not work well together or it might connect with each other but you will not be able to make clear phone conversations. If you are going to purchase a GPS device with Bluetooth to make it work with your mobile phone, it is better to have it tested first. The reason why I am telling you this is because this is what I experienced when I tried to make my mobile phone work with my GPS device. Although, I have to say that making those two work together makes things a lot more convenient.
