I'll admit there are other places I could post this question but I thought this was a good place to start.

I'm running the ArcGIS app for android on a Motorola Xoom and able to access and edit feature services hosted by our ArcGIS server.  So far so good.  Next I'd like to substitue a better GPS receiver.  I assume it's possible to connect via Bluetooth but so far I'm having no luck.  I've got a Trimble Juno paired with the Xoom but no connectivity is taking place.

Just curious if anyone has successfully connected to an external GPS unit and used it with the ArcGIS app for either android or iPhone?  Thanks.
