    GPS(global positioning system) testing is incuding in software/system testing . GPS testing happen through flexible test software which are combined with modular PXI to perform single and multisattelite GPS reciever measurement. bluetooth testing is included in module testing. Testing is divided in unit testing, integration testing, module testing and software testing.
    If you want to become a software testing engineer than as a skills

    I have worked on the Mobile Embedded testing. And the work given to me was -

    1. Testing the OS and debugging various options specific to the ROM.
    2. Debug apps on the Android
    3. Debugging various hardware options with respect new Android update.

    Lot of things were there for the testing. Most of the testing software I used appium, calabash and few other in house tools. Though some were neutral to the OS and some were written only for the Windows. I didn't tested much iOS devices so not sure about their tools and the options.

    I'd say if you got the job in this industry, tools and the knowledge will be eventually something you have to learn. And that's how you're going to learn the stuff. Learn as required. Because a lot of tools change, so learning some tools often gets wasted in efforts. See what's important for your company and learn those specific tools.
