Localization. Using coordinates from Bluetooth GPS receiver program continuosly searches for the nearest point in your surroundings and calculates your distance and direction to the point. You can create your database of waypoints by collecting waypoints from your current position or you can prepare them in PC and export them to the phone.

Sending position by SMS. BlueSky GPS is able to send your position and distance and direction to the nearest point in SMS message (e.g. "16 m NW to Museum of Art"). You can send this SMS manually and also automatically in specified interval. Moreover you can request position from another BlueSky GPS user by sending SMS (you can request position also from phone without BlueSky GPS - syntax is "BLUESKY PASSWORD"). To protect you from abusing this service by another people, you should select your password - it will answer only to SMS with correct password. Received SMS with position are saved as new point in database. This enables you to keep track of someone else (or you can let BlueSky GPS to navigate you to him/her). SMS with position can be received also by stock GSM phone (without BlueSky GPS), but without this program you have much less comfort.

User interface. It has five pages for displaying information from GPS, you can change them by pressing left and right arrows. All pages have their own context menu, which you can open by pressing OK key.
