Bluetooth GPS

I got a Bluetooth GPS device today. The memory card for my Smartphone hasn't arrived yet, so I can't use it for real. Curious to see how it works though, I paired it with my Windows box and fired up HyperTerminal (remember that program?) direct to its COM port. The thing just spits out its NMEA data once per second. Awesome. NMEA is so easy to parse—it's just a comma delimited line of text. I think I have a project to work on this weekend!
