Lightbulb GPS signal w/ BT on M96

Hi,

I'd like to send the GPS location from my phone to my M96, in order to see my route in apps like Google Map or else.

Has anybody already tried that?

When I receive my stylus (old one is broken), I'll keep you updated with my search, for now it's really hard to do something with the 5-way controller.

Some leads:
Activate and share GPS info over BT with some app from the phone
Turn ON "Allow mock locations" in developers option,
turn on BT, connect to phone, and use an app to emulate GPS signal received from BT...

Not sure that's possible. You can, however, use Pushbullet to share your route from your phone (https://www.pushbullet.com/) . It'll push a link to your m96 - you click on it and it opens in your browser.

Won't GPS track you, but will provide turn by turn directions in an easy to read format.

Pushbullet works on my m96 so far - I can easily push documents, pictures, and (now that I tested it) directions to my device.

You'll obviously have to be on wi-fi to make it happen (or tethered to your phone's mobile data).
