All you need is an Android Phone with GPS. Connect it to the Nook Color on the same network with Wi-Fi or tether the device to your Android phone. This is how it has to be done because the Nook Color’s Bluetooth capabilities are still in the works. Once the devices are connected, you need to run the TGPS server on the phone and the TGPS client on the Nook Color. That’s it. Google Maps and other location based apps on the Nook Color will detect the GPS data and you can use it as a perfect GPS navigator.
TetherGPS Lite will allow you to share the GPS on one Wi-Fi enabled Android device with another Wi-Fi enabled Android device (other non-GPS tablets will also work). The server version is Lite, it will run for 5 minutes at a time. You will need to enable mock locations on the client device (Settings > Applications > Development > Allow mock locations), enable GPS location on both devices and use the TGPS Client and TGPS Server widgets to enable the services.
Just another gold star on Nook Color’s list. If Barnes & Noble could only have known what the Nook Color eReader would turn out to be. It’s a great digital reading device no doubt but once the hackers got onto it, it got Honeycomb on board, games, apps, partial Bluetooth capabilities, and was recently used as an inboard car dash system.
If you are into rooting and hacking, the device is one hell of a tablet for the price of $250.
