A software gps simulator, providing TCP/IP, UDP, http and serial port connectivity in NMEA 0183, XML or user defined output format. Usable for testing all kinds of GPS applications. Can playback pre-recorded GPS files with NMEA output.
- No GPS hardware needed
- Selection of ground path shapes
- Can replay recorded NMEA files
- TCP,UDP,HTTP, serial outputs
- User defined output format
I would love to see an offset for sending time strings. I am attempting to use this program to send data to a device that has a PST time offset. So in order for the program to have the receiving device show the correct time, either my laptop has to be SET for UTC, or the device under test has to be set for UTC. They can not be set to their actual time zones to have the receiving device show the proper time. Ideally I would like to have my laptop set to the local time, but have the program send out time in the UTC zone (not the local time), so that the device under test would compensate for the UTC-PST time shift. This would REALLY help. Otherwise, this is a great app.
Excellent work, but I think NMEA checksum must be 2 digit even if it's less than hex 10. For example not *E but should be *0E. All hardware GPS modules that I have used so far, generated checksum above way. And I also experienced several hardware devices that couldn't works properly without above checksum format
