    Does pocket streets provide the ability to link to a GPS receiver over a TCP connection or does it only monitor the serial port for incomming NMEA formatted GPS readings.

    As far as we can tell, the GPS interface in all Microsoft mapping products checks the serial port for NMEA formatted strings. This doesn't mean you necessarily need to have a serial GPS device - USB and PC Card devices also work because they are typically mapped to serial ports . But whether GPS signals over a TCP connection are recognized is doubtful. We haven't tried - I guess the only way to know for sure is to try it out.
