GPS Parser for Windows CE 5.0 ....


V

Vivek Pawar

i have developed my application on Windows mobile 5.0 platform and
used Intermediate driver for GPS parsing, but my target device
platform now changed to Windows CE 5.0. so my GPS code fails at
PInvoke "gpsapi.dll" error. Is there any api like intermediate driver
of Windows Mobile 5.0 present for Windows CE 5.0?

Thanks
Vivek.

Hi,
With CE 5.0 you have 2 issues: there is no intermediate driver and your app
must have exclusive control over the GPS COM port. To have both features,
take a look at http://www.franson.biz tools, in particular GpsGate to share
the GPS feed among several applications and the GpsTools for managed (.net)
GPS feed parsing and helper functions.

We used to use the GPS code from OpenNETCF on WM 2003, it might work
for you:
