Broken GPSIs there a way to share location for Ingress via BlueTooth?
My wife and son (Ragtails and Omnipotens respectively and I am Eiron if y'all wanna check us out out ingame) play Ingress together quite a bit. We've been levelling my son up, so he's at Level 7. Anyhoo ... so my wife recently dropped her Nexus 4 and smashed the screen such that the lower half of the screen is unresponsive. This obviously makes playing Ingress tough. We've ordered her a new phone and will get her N4 repaired once it arrives for my daughter to use.
My son also has a Nexus 4 with the latest Android release, so in a pinch, we can log her into his phone as another user and she can do some Ingressing that way, with me. BUT, as you can imagine, this prevents my son from using his phone, so it's not ideal.
My wife owns an Asus Transformer Prime, one of the ones with the metal body. Unfortunately, the aluminum body prevents the GPS from working at all. WIFI location sometimes
works, but it's hella unreliable.
I have installed a BlueTooth GPS ouput app on my own phone (HTC One M8), and a BlueTooth GPS input app on my wife's tablet. I have them configured to play nice together, and Google Maps (etc) all work fine. HOWEVER it requires that Mock Locations be turned on! This sucks, of course, because Mock Locations must be disabled for Ingress to run (clearly in an effort to prevent spoofers, an effort which I applaud).
SO! Is there a way to share the GPS location (doesn't have to be BT, it can be NFC or WiFi, or whatever, I don't really care) that is acceptable to Ingress?
If not, we'll just keep logging her into my son's phone for now so that she doesn't lose her Sojourner progress. She might have a guardian that she's been recharging, too. So we do
have a work-around for now. It just sucks.
