GPS Simulator

  • Uses a map database, outputs NMEA positional reports based on cursor.

  • Selection of messages at power up via check boxes.
  • Simulation of certain brands of GPS, such as SiRF. Responds to SiRF NMEA messages.
  • Binary modes may or may not be supported.
  • Right click to zoom, etc, so that position doesn't change by requiring cursor to move.
  • Perhaps limit rate of change, so that clicking between two points and setting a rate slowly updates.

  • Altitude support with topo maps.
  • Output over serial port, USB (maybe), and ethernet port (NMEA server?)
