GNSS Sensor to Virtual Com Port

Recommended Posts

Not sure if we can do this via AutoIT but it is worth asking.

Newer devices (in this case a surface 3) use HID Sensor Arrays that are made to work with the Windows Store apps.

So for GPS it will work with stuff in the Windows API but it will not work with legacy programs that use Com ports instead.

This is for a 911 Legacy application we use that uses NMEA via Com port for navigation of Fire and EMS trucks.  As of now I will use external GPS devices but my goal is to use the internal device at some point if I can get this working correctly.

There are some small time programs that advertise this function, I figured if they can do it we can do it too but I would rather have my own in house stuff rather than pay a 3rd party company where I will probably have no support.
