Thank you for your speedy reply! Very impressive. First time posting.
Re Wide FS - I re-read the WideFS 6.78 & FSUIPC4 User guides - my mistake: it is the Client part of the service that can read info from GPSout going thru a COM port on Bluetooth, not WideFS.
Now, here's the weird part:
Android has several programs that can read NMEA data and show on a map. Here's three [for anyone else who might be doing this] and what I see on the Android device [ATT Aria]:
Bluetooth GPS Service [by Trackaroo] - heading, speed, and altitude, no location [lat & long]
Turbo GPS [ by Michael Chourdakis] - same as above
Bluetooth GPS [by Googoo Android] - location info [YAY!], but no speed, alt, or bearing displayed. SO - what I wanted in the first place, a moving map on the PDA, is now working!
The Googoo Android app has the ability to read the data coming from GPSout: all relevant data seems to be included, for some reason it just doesn't pick up on the speed, alt, & bearing.
I'm using SoftTH for the three-screen experience - which works like a charm for FSX. But, in order to see a moving map [other than the one on the GPS], it would require changing between windows, which SoftTH often does not like. FSnav would have been great - cheap, and accessible right from FSX program, but, it "is no more". Unless I am mistaken, all the GoogleEarth connection apps run outside of FSX and require a window switch.
Again, thank you for your response.
