GPS Datas sharing

Hi everyone !

I just installed the 7.1 version on my Torch 9810 to use the Mobile Hotspot.

I use it to have the internet on my iPod touch.. When you share your connexion from an iPhone, you also have the GPS informations of the iPhone on the iPod so I wanted to know if it were also possible to share the GPS datas from a BlackBerry to an external device ?

Thank you very much !

PS I live in Switzerland so my english is not perfect !

Re: GPS Datas sharing

Hello Jeremy,

Welcome to the BlackBerry Support Community.


Thank you for your question regarding the Mobile Hotspot functionality on your BlackBerry Torch 9810 smartphone.


Sharing GPS data from the BlackBerry smartphone on other devices that connect to it is currently unsupported.


The Mobile Hotspot feature may also not be available depending on your mobile service provider.


Thank you.
