Absolutely. If its an android phone there are several apps to provide GPS phone data to the PC via Bluetooth. I guess there are some for iphones as well, but i dont have one!
However, in my experience with andriod, they are not that stable, and I personally would not rely on one for primary navigation. Cool for playing with though! ☺
