    Default Bluetooth and bluetooth gps setup in BT2 Final

    i use (in windows)

    Netstumbler with a bluetooth gps receiver for spotting wifi spots and collecting the gps location,This works well altho not as accurate as i thought it would be,The summary file is saved and used with Stumbleverter and all wifi spots plotted to auto route maps (very cool imo). I have no bluetooth built in so it all runs through a dongle, (fine in xp) but BT2 does not see my dongle.

    Q,1 How do i get the dongle up and running in BT2?
    Q,2 Can BT2 plot wifi spots from a gps?
    Q,3 Can settings be changed to make gps locations accurate?

    Thanks for any help with this......

    try similar commands :
    hciconfig up hci0
    hcitool dev
    hcitool scan
    hcitool cc xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx &
    hcitool con
    rfcomm connect /dev/rfcomm0 xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx &
    gpsd
    gpsd -p /dev/rfcomm0
    cat /dev/rfcomm0
    To plot the maps read both about kismet and gpsdrive
    if kismet loses signal find the post about replacing gpsd
