Default Using the Nook as a navigation instrument

I know this is done for navigation in gliders. I'm interested to know
whether the Nook can be converted to a GPS for cars and whether there is an
app it would accept for showing compass headings based on satellite info
instead of using the magnetic poles.

Does anyone know about this or can suggest where else to look?

All comments welcome!

Look in here. Seems to be a cheap solution too.
