Using one Bluetooth GPS receiver with two PDAs or laptops
This is a great on the newsgroup for anyone who cannot take to the road without a car-load of electronics.

It explains how to use a single Bluetooth GPS receiver with two (or presumably more) computers at the same time. Normally Bluetooth sets up one-one connections between pairs of devices--as befits its goal of being a "cable replacement" technology rather than a wireless network per se--but apparently one can use running on one computer to retransmit the Bluetooth serial data stream to another computer or PDA. The first computer can also use the original data stream itself, and hence software running on both computers sees the data.
