ZylGpsReceiver.NET Mobile 1.60
Mobile is an event driven Compact Framework.NET component for Windows
Mobile, that communicates with a GPS receiver.
It is designed for mobile devices such as Pocket PCs, which run
on Windows Mobile operating systems.
It returns latitude, longitude, altitude, speed, heading and many
other useful parameters of the current position and the parameters
of the satellites in view. The component is extended to calculate
distances and make conversions between different measurement units.
This component works with any NMEA 0183 compatible receiver, integrated
or connected through USB, IrDA or Bluetooth, because these devices
have a driver that redirects the input from the USB, IrDA or Bluetooth
port to a virtual serial port.
0183 (or NMEA for short) is a combined electrical and data specification
for communication between marine electronic devices such as echo
sounder, sonars, Anemometer (winds speed and direction), gyrocompass,
autopilot, GPS receivers and many other types of instruments. It
has been defined by, and is controlled by, the US-based National
Marine Electronics Association.
Supported NMEA sentences: GPGLL,
GPGGA, GPVTG, GPRMC, GPGSA, GPGSV, GPZDA, GPMSS, GPAAM, GPRMB, GPBWC,
GPWPL, GPRTE, GPXTE, GPHDT, GPHDM.
component supports GPS (USA), GLONASS (Russia), BeiDou (China),
Quasi-Zenith (Japan) and Galileo (EU) satellites, but theoretically
you can use for any other satellite as well.
Mobile is written 100% in C# , based 100% on .NET Comapct Framework.
With this component you will be able to develop robust GPS applications
for devices running Windows Mobile 5 or Windows Mobile 6. Possible
applications can be:
* Vehicle Navigation
* Marine Navigation
* Fleet Management
* Emergency Locator
* Geographic Surveying
* AVL and Locating-Based Services
* Personal Navigation or touring devices
* Tracking devices
* Sporting and Recreation
* Time synchronization
The Global Positioning
System (GPS) is a worldwide radio-navigation system formed from
a constellation of 24 satellites and their ground stations.
GPS uses these
satellites as reference points to calculate positions accurate to
a matter of meters. In fact, with advanced forms of GPS you can
make measurements to better than a centimeter!
In a sense it's
like giving every square meter on the planet a unique address.
have been miniaturized to just a few integrated circuits and so
are becoming very economical. And that makes the technology accessible
to virtually everyone.
These days GPS
is finding its way into cars, boats, planes, construction equipment,
movie making gear, farm machinery, even laptop computers.
Soon GPS will
become almost as basic as the telephone. Indeed, at Trimble, we
think it just may become a universal utility.
GPS technology has matured into a resource that goes far beyond
its original design goals. These days scientists, sportsmen, farmers,
soldiers, pilots, surveyors, hikers, delivery drivers, sailors,
dispatchers, lumberjacks, fire-fighters, and people from many other
walks of life are using GPS in ways that make their work more productive,
safer, and sometimes even easier.
demo version is fully functional, but it displays a nag dialog (the
licensed version will, of course, not have a nag dialog).
