ZylGPSReceiver.NET 2.00 | 249 kB
ZylGPSReceiver.NET is an event driven .NET component that communicates with a GPS receiver. 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 connected to one of the serial ports. You can use it also with USB, IrDA and Bluetooth devices, because these devices have a driver that redirects the input from the USB, IrDA or Bluetooth port to a virtual serial port (you can check it in System/Device Manager/Ports). If your USB device is not provided with such a driver, then use a USB controller whose vendor provides a virtual serial port driver, such as FTDI or use a USB/RS-232 adapter. For Garmin receivers you have to install Spanner software.
