Advancements in technology made it possible to map out the entire globe, and build navigation systems which make sure you never get lost, on foot, or when driving your car. This operation is done through GPS devices, which are now as accessible as any application even from your mobile phone. What’s more, you can share and manage data through applications like GpsGate.
The application depends on a GPS device or application, so you need to keep it nearby and connect it to your PC for things to work out. Luckily, there’s an impressive support, and variety for devices and connection methods, with a wizard-driven process to help you easily pick source, and destination, or the possibility to go through an advanced configurator, letting you manually handle all variables.
Whether you use the wizard, or advanced configurator, input methods allow you to beam data through Bluetooth, COM ports, Garmin USB, Garmin COM to NMEA, TCP/IP clients, UDP receiver, ActiveSync, as well as virtual sources for existing data, such as a simulator, or even virtual COM ports.
The difference when selecting an output is that you can create an entire list of destinations, which can include computers or devices connected to your local network. In addition, the application can be set to retry on timeout or errors, which comes in handy for unstable or weak connection methods.
To help you get familiar with the set of features faster, GpsGate also comes with a built-in simulator. It works by manually writing down coordinates, and starting the simulator so you can then select it in the configurator. Furthermore, a NMEA logger can help you record sessions in order to analyze them later on.
To sum it up, connecting multiple devices can be done through multiple methods, and GpsGate can easily be used as a reliable link, and transfer node for GPS data between an impressive variety of GPS systems. Connection can be effortlessly configured through the wizard, while the simulator provides solid testing grounds, making this app worth a try overall.
