    New and Having Trouble Finding Examples

    Hi there!

    I have been looking for a few simple examples but have been trouble finding them anywhere.

    The first example I am looking for is connecting to a GPS reciever and getting the current lat, lon.

    Another example I am looking for is how to get a string of driving directions from one lat lon to another lat lon.

    If there is any certain direction you guys could point me it would be great

    Hi,

    I cannot give example right now, but for the driving directions you have to check out the Route object. You create starte / end Location (and via points if needed) and call the Calculate method.

    Then you can step trough the driving directions.

    For parsing one of the NMEA strings from the GPS receiver is not a hard job. If you tell us which string you want info on about the we can give it to you (there are many). The strings are identified with the leading part.
