Using External GPS device as opposed to Tablet Internal GPS

I am relatively new to KoBo Toolbox, but my team and I have been using it with a tablet. We need to use gps coordinates to record our data and recently purchased a geode sub-meter gps unit. Is there a way switch the settings in KoBo to use an external gps unit (the geode) to obtain its gps coordinates rather than it using the internal gps in the tablet?

I have not tested the above alternative you are asking about

Logically, if you can have your phone set to collect GPS coordinates using the alternative as a default, then KoboCollect should be able to use this particular one to collect it. As I said, I have not tested this approach; I would therefore appreciate if you documented your tests for sharing with the wider group
