Blynk2 free version missing connection type BLUETOOTH and GPS streaming module

blynk2 free version missing connection type BLUETOOTH and GPS streaming module.
Should I upgrade to paid version?

The new blynk (IOT) does not support Bluetooth connection method, so it’s not a free plan limitation, and the GPS streaming widget has been removed.

Thanks for the reply.
My project requires Bluetooth & GPS connection. Are there any workarounds in Blynk2?

Can you tell us more about your project ?
What are you trying to achieve exactly ?

This is the “Follow Me Cooler” that I wanted to duplicate…
(Make an Autonomous "Follow Me" Cooler - Part 2 - YouTube)

That’s not going to be possible with Blynk IoT.

Pete.

I expected that.
There’s a workaround. You can use a 3rd party app to send the phone’s GPS coordinates to the blynk server using blynk API, then your robot will request that data from the server.
