Share GPS serial data between apps with Virtual COM Port Driver PRO
The majority of people have been exposed to a GPS unit and have a basic understanding of what they are and how they are used. You may be unaware that you can extend the usefulness of a GPS unit and get more out of the device. As you probably know, a GPS receiver that is connected to a computer’s serial port is usually limited to communicating with a single program at a time.
Here’s a situation for you to consider. You are using a GPS receiver to transmit data to your computer via its connection to a serial port. You are reading the GPS data being displayed by an application that is receiving the data. If you have multiple applications that can use the GPS transmission, you need to have the ability to send GPS data to more than one application simultaneously.
A software solution exists that lets you share GPS data quite easily. If you want a serial GPS device to be able to communicate with multiple applications at the same time, your best bet is to use GPS splitter software.
