Bluetooth GPS Provider on Samsung Galaxy (Android 2.2)

Many users experience some problems using the app on a Samsung Galaxy running Android 2.2.

The problem is caused by Samsung's modifications to the Android's GPS code.

The exact cause of the problem is:

11-15 08:18:05.209 E/AndroidRuntime( 3024): *** FATAL EXCEPTION IN SYSTEM PROCESS: GpsLocationProvider
11-15 08:18:05.209 E/AndroidRuntime( 3024): java.lang.NullPointerException

11-15 08:18:05.209 E/AndroidRuntime( 3024):     at com.android.internal.location.GpsLocationProvider$ProviderHandler.handleMessage(GpsLocationProvider.java:2215)
11-15 08:18:05.209 E/AndroidRuntime( 3024):     at android.os.Handler.dispatchMessage(Handler.java:99)
11-15 08:18:05.209 E/AndroidRuntime( 3024):     at android.os.Looper.loop(Looper.java:123)

Unfortunately there is nothing the app can do about that but some users reported that it helps to toggle the internal GPS (on/off or off/on) before starting the btgps service.
