ExplorOz Traveller: Windows 10 GPS support

Friday, Sep 15, 2017 at 11:37


One important thing to note with the Windows 10 version is that we built it using the latest Store App functionality, which requires that the GPS device be supported in Windows as a Location Sensor. If you have a phone/tablet or laptop with integrated GPS/Location sensor then you are good to go. However if you have a tablet/laptop and use a Serial/USB or Bluetooth connected GPS unit these are generally NOT setup in Windows as Location Sensors (we think this is a mistake from Microsoft as they should support this with the OS).
Anyway there is a solution and we recommend GPSComplete (https://www.turboirc.com/gps7/). Not only does this product suport serial/USB/Bluetooth but it will even let you use your phones GPS with Windows. There are two variations of this product one called Direct and another called Reverse (comes separate or in a bundle). If you intend to use another program with your GPS like OziExplorer or TrackRanger than you will need the Bundle, Direct connects the GPS to Windows 10 and Reverse then makes another Serial port from the Direct connection (allowing you to connect back to your existing program). If you only want to use Windows 10 Store apps with the GPS then you only need the Direct product. You can download and run this product in evaluation mode.
