UMPC Moving Map Software with Bluetooth or USB GPS


Chris C. asks:

You can use the Tracking feature in ExpertGPS to create a moving-map display on any laptop or UMPC running Windows XP or Vista. Some UMPCs have internal GPS receivers that output NMEA data. For others, you can add a serial, USB, or Bluetooth GPS antenna.

There are so many GPS mouse antennae on the market – I don’t keep track of them. Any GPS that outputs NMEA data to a virtual COM port will work with the Tracking feature in ExpertGPS to create a moving-map display on your Samsung UMPC.

Here’s one example of a USB GPS Mouse antenna that lists NMEA output.
