XPort - freeware alternative to GPSGate
Posted: Sun Nov 30, 2008 3:18 am
Share a GPS with multiple applications by creating multiple virtual serial ports.
XPort COM port splitter for Windows XP and Windows Vista.
Compatible with all GPS and Navigation software.
Used by Military, Fire/EMS, Police, and consumers everywhere around the world.
Recommended by Microsoft, USGlobalSat, Pharos, and others.
* Up to 8 virtual, bi-directional ports for simultaneous application usage.
* Optimized to use very little memory. Much smaller than any other solution available.
* Scans and repairs the COM port arbiter to free up unused ports after drivers leave them allocated.
* Scan is only compatible with NMEA 0183 and SiRF Binary protocols, but the splitter handles any form of data transparently as long as it's continuous.
* Fixes most hibernation issues. Any USB device, including hubs can be automatically stopped and restarted when hibernating.
