    Getting a current location with access VBA

    I have been messing around with mappoint in my access 2010 app for a bit now, mainly getting coordinates and converting them to addresses, but a new request has been made to see if I can get a current location from mappoint.
    I have a gps device and have tested it just using mappoint itself I have made sure it works, I am just unable to find any information on how to make a search or find a location from the GPS device through the SDK.
    thanks!

    What version of MapPoint do you have? I know they expanded the GPS functions (methods & properties) in recent versions.

    Is the map always centered on the current GPS coordinate? I think maybe you could use the Location property of the Map object?
