I have no idea... Have a look at Options->Info->Ports - what do you see? Something like usb0 etc? If so, you could try this:
Code:

GPS-Connection-URL: comm:usb0
GPS-Device-Name: USBPortGPS

What if his phone does not have a bluetooth...
What if he has got a serial GPS and he does not want to spend money for another BT GPS...
And I think we can find few another "what if"...

Hmmm... it may be usable in some special situations... car, ship... maybe some more... But I have to agree with Temptrekbuddy, that it's very unpractical in most cases.
I did not know, that IR GPS is available at all.
I think it's cheap, because it's hard to sell. And it's hard to sell, 'cause it's hard to use it...

Even that is expensive.
I have QStarz Q-810. Works well, good accuracy.
I've bought it new from ebay for $70 including shipping.
