How to use a Bluetooth GPS with a Motorola Q Community - Setting up Bluetooth GPS with Motorola Q

Bluetooth GPS's have gotten inexpensive recently. I bought a GlobalSat BT-328, but was initially unable to use it with my Verizon Motorola Q, because of Verizon disabling the Bluetooth Serial Port Profile. These instructions worked to get past that problem.

The GPS receiver is about the size of a Zippo lighter. Since it's Bluetooth, it requires no cable to the Q. Now when I use Google Maps Mobile and ask for directions, I can use my current location as the starting point. This should be very helpful as we start looking at houses to purchase.
