    If you already have your iPhone jailbroken, you will need to go into Cydia and download the ROQY bluetooth stack. Once you have that downloaded, you should be able to pair the device with it. Let me know if you need help. I would be more then happy to help to make sure it works before I order one.

    I'd be glad to test but it's a paid app, and I have not much use for the iPhone+GPS right now. Maybe when and if I buy the iPad, but not the iPhone, unless there's a killer app (not nav) that I'm missing.

    Come to think of it, maybe something like a lap-time plugin, or something like REV, without the OBD stuff. I'll think about it, but first I still need to find out how much this roqy actually cost (it's not stated anywhere on the website).

    I didn't think there was a charge for the bluetooth stack. I was almost sure it was free. I think you can download it to try out before you buy it.

    If you wanted, I could register it to verify it works. That way you would be able to use it and have it register for testing it for me.

    Do you know how much is it? I have no idea! They don't post it anywhere (or maybe I'm blind).

    It is like 9 euros. If you PM me your serial, I should be able to give you the registration for it.

    At first didn't work. GPS was connected to my Tablet. To make sure, I also rebooted the iPhone and turned off the iPhone bluetooth as per instructions.

    Connected easily after about 20sec. No code requested. Just connected.

    Let's see if it's going to disconnect sooner or later, and why. Hopefully only after the Qstartz batteries run out (it was charging, so it's not going to last long).

    Awesome, now I can order mine. I wish I could find them locally.
