    Run Many GPS Applications Using One GPS

    Run Many GPS Applications Using One GPS

    Stockholm, Sweden -- Franson Technology has released Franson GpsGate, a Windows and PocketPC utility that lets you run many GPS applications using a single GPS. New features in GpsGate 2.0 are the ability to share a GPS over ActiveSync, or Bluetooth. Support for Garmin software and GPS receivers. And GpsGate 2.0 will let you connect Google Earth to a normal GPS, something that otherwise isn't possible.

    Serious GPS users often have several applications that they want to run simultaneously. Without Franson GpsGate, it's necessary to shut down one application before beginning another. With Franson GpsGate, you can share one GPS among several applications. Simply create additional virtual serial ports, and any GPS applications can connect to them.

    With Franson GpsGate, power boaters and sailors can access their navigation systems and, at the same time, use other GPS software. Car drivers will benefit by being able to switch between their route-planning software and driver's journal. Amateur pilots can simultaneously access their flight plans and weather data.

    Franson GpsGate has a built-in simulator. Define a set of waypoints, and Franson GpsGate will simulate a GPS traveling between those waypoints.

    Franson GpsGate also has a built-in logger. It's easy to log and play back real-time GPS data. You can save real-time scenarios, and use them for analysis, demonstration, or software development back in the office.

    In addition to sharing, simulating, and logging GPS functions, Franson GpsGate can be used to perform a number of specialized GPS-related functions. For example, many NMEA GPS applications cannot communicate with the Garmin GPS 18 because it is a USB device. Franson GpsGate lets you connect your USB hardware and GPS software. Franson GpsGate can be used by people on a LAN, with several mobile Windows computers and a single GPS device.

    Every month, more and more GPS applications are being released for both the Windows and PocketPC platforms. With Franson GpsGate, you can assign each application to a virtual serial port and run them simultaneously, using a single GPS.

    Franson GpsGate Standard for Windows or for PocketPC costs $29.95(US) for a single-user license. Franson GpsGate Express, a light version of Franson GpsGate Standard, is available for $9.95(US) for either platform. You can download free, 14-day trial versions. An OEM version of Franson GpsGate Express is available. The OEM kit allows software and hardware developers to make their offerings more valuable by letting other GPS applications coexist with mapping software. Developers can extend GpsGate using the new GpsGate SDK.
