Please help me, because I don't have a clue as to what I'm doing with this. I'm looking to be able to either source or manufacture a GPS datalogger that has bluetooth capability to be able to transfer coordinates to an iphone. For example, if I'm hiking and the datalogger is in my backpack, I want it to be able to connect with my iphone ever 20 mins and upload all of the coordinates that I have hiked. There are a couple of very sophisticated and expensive devices on the market, but I'm looking for something super simple. I can write the code for an iOS app so long as the bluetooth is capable of working with an iPhone (not all are). Can someone help me with the following:
1. Can this product be sourced? Does it already exist and I just need to buy it or do I need to make it?
2. What are the steps involved in making it a reality? From prototype to finished product and manufacture, I need some simple steps?
3. Approximate costs involved in doing this?
Thank you tremendously. I look forward to your responses.

The bluetooth on the iphone/ipad has problems to connect with old bluetooth device such as the old bluetooth GPS receiver. You need new designed GPS receiver with bluetooth V4.0, also named as BLE.
I am an internationally experienced industrial designer, and believe I will be a most suitable fit to help you source and/or prototype to manufacture your product. Please see my PM for further details.
