I am not sure how detailed instructions I can give but the following
1) install debian
2) apt-get remove fso-frameworkd udev zhone fso-gpsd zhone-session
3) apt-get install gpsd and configure it to use "/dev/ttySAC1"
4) add something like
echo 1 > /sys/devices/platform/s3c2440-i2c/i2c-adapter/i2c-0/0-0073/neo1973-pm-gps.0/pwron
to /etc/rc.local so that GPS gets power
5) read http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/bluetooth-guide.xml and configure
6) if you can ping your phone over bluetooth networking you should be
able to also access the gpsd (tcp port 2947).
I have personally used tcp/ip over bluetooth under debian on the
freerunner so the above steps should work although they might be bit
