Hi Howard,
An interesting use for the software, thanks for getting in touch.

It will be easier to use your GPS via a USB connection but Bluetooth should work as well. The idea is once connected a new serial port will show up on your machine and you point the scanner to that.
The serial port name depends on your operating system, which do you use Linux, OS X or Windows?

To use the iPad GPS I'd try searching iTunes for something like 'GPS NMEA' or 'GPS Bluetooth', a few matches come up but I don't have one to try it out.
