I want to share live GPS data from an Android smartphone to my iPad (4th generation wifi-only). I've read about BTstacks and other jailbreak tweaks, but I don't want to jailbreak! I have also read that there are some GPS receivers that are compatible with the iPad, so I think that maybe there is a method to connect the phone to the iPad that would allow the iPad to recognize the phone as a compatible GPS Bluetooth receiver.

Is there a good way to share GPS signal without jailbreaking the iPad?

I'd say just try using the android phone as a Wifi hotspot. –  Matthieu Riegler Jan 1 '13 at 18:20
