1) First download 'Share GPS Beta' on the Android phone WITH GPS (tick NMEA in the app settings).

2) For the CM7 HP Touchpad WITHOUT GPS download an app called 'Bluetooth GPS' (has a blue round icon) and select Mock GPS Provider (also make sure the same setting is set in the Settings>Applications>Development menu).

3) Pair both devices via bluetooth. And in 'Bluetooth GPS' app on the CM7 HP Touchpad select your Android device that has bluetooth and press connect.

4) Find something useful to do with GPS now that its on your HP Touchpad (albeit with a little help from another Android phone).

Update:Works with Wifi sharing over 3G as well when Touchpad is tethered to the same phone via wifi.
