Virtual GPS 1.53
GPS is a GPS (Global Positioning System) simulator software.
You can use it to emulate a GPS receiver unit connected to your
computer or analyze various GPS sources. It's ideal when you
need GPS input, but you have no signal or you can use it to
test your GPS applications. It supports various NMEA 0183 sentences,
so it can be used with any GPS mapping software. NMEA 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, GPWPL, GPRTE, GPAAM.
Supported satellites: GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, Galileo.
in three modes: simulator mode, file mode and real GPS mode.
In simulator mode the latitude and longitude coordinates are
periodically incremented with a defined step. In file mode the
GPS data is loaded from a text file which contains NMEA 0183
sentences. In real GPS mode the GPS data is coming from a real
The GPS data can be transmitted periodically to a serial port
(UDP ports are also supported). To get the output of the simulator,
you can use a null-modem cable which interconnects two physical
serial or USB ports, or you can interconnect two bluetooth or
Irda ports, or you can use one of the virtual serial port software
from the market, which emulates two interconnected serial ports
Virtual Serial Ports Emulator by ETERLOGIC,
Null-modem emulator (com0com),
Serial Port Kit, Virtual
Serial Port Driver and others. Another possible application
of the software is to broadcast the output of the simulator
through serial, USB, bluetooth or IrDA connections.
