Virtual GPS GPS emulator software on the computer. You can use Virtual GPS to simulate a GPS receiver connected to a computer or analyze various GPS sources.
Virtual GPS is the ideal GPS location location simulator when you need GPS signal input but in an area with no signal, more simply, Virtual GPS is used to test other GPS applications. GPS data is loaded from a text file containing NMEA 0183 (a specialized electronic and data standard used in the telecommunications industry), so Virtual GPS is used with any GPS mapping software.
NMEA Data 0183 (NMEA for short) combines electronic data and standard data parameters to connect between electronic devices such as sound emitters, sound waves, wind speed and direction meters, compass gyroscope, autopilot, GPS receiver and many other devices. Typically, Virtual GPS is controlled by The US-based National Marine Electronics Association as well as in laboratories, research … without depending on real GPS signals.
Virtual GPS Supports NMEA data types such as GPGLL, GPGGA, GPVTG, GPRMC, GPGSA, GPGSV, GPZDA, GPWPL, GPRTE, GPAAM. Currently, Virtual GPS supports simulating fake GPS signals from satellites such as GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou.
Virtual GPS works with 3 modes: emulator mode, file mode and real GPS. In simulation mode, the coordinate system of latitude and longitude is periodically increased according to preset steps. In file mode, GPS data is loaded from a text file containing NMEA 0183. In contrast, real GPS mode retrieves the positioning data from the real GPS receiver.
GPS data can be periodically transmitted to 1 UDP port. To receive the output signal from this GPS emulator, use a null-modem cable to connect 2 physical ports or a USB port, you can even connect 2 Bluetooth or IrDA ports or use one of the software. Virtual port on the market to simulate 2 connection ports such as Free Virtual Serial Ports Emulator of ETERLOGIC, Null-modem Emulator (com0com), Virtual Serial Port Kit, Virtual Serial Port Driver… In addition to the main function mentioned above, Virtual GPS is also used to transmit the output data of the emulator through USB, Bluetooth or IrDA connections.
