Note: for a basic setup which doesn't involve soldering wires to your Kobo's motherboard, you can attach an external GPS/Glonas dongle to the Kobo's external USB port and get much of the same functionality. To do that, you'll need the following:

...or you can connect your Kobo to the GPS on your mobile phone (though this will drain your phone's battery if you don't have it connected to an external USB battery):

  • Mobile Phone - Settings - Turn on WiFi Hotspot
  • Kobo - Power on - Network - WiFi ON - Connect to phone hotspot
