    I've find an app in the store called GPS Bluetooth that connects to an external GPS. However it seems that the BT GPS only works within this app.

    I have tried the same thing using Here Maps, but the Here Maps does not recognized my external GPS. Evenmore the BT GPS disconnects from the mobile after a while. Do you know if WP8 supports external BT GPS? How do I manage to use it with Here?

    Your best chance of founding out is too email both Nokia and the other company which they can tell you if it will work of not.

    Nokia Here does not support external GPS. As for that app using the external GPS while on background it is totally dependent on how the app background functionality is designed.

    The windows phone only reads GPS from the internal GPS sensor. Any other device must be read by specific apps so this means almost all apps will not work with your external GPS
