Virtual GPS 1.56
GPS Simulator

Virtual 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 satellites: GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, Galileo.

It operates 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 GPS receiver.
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 like: Free Virtual Serial Ports Emulator by ETERLOGIC, Null-modem emulator (com0com), Virtual 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.

If the Map section does not work with OSM, try the following settings in Microsoft Edge:
