Localizer 5 provides a simple, inexpensive way to use your favorite desktop mapping and navigation programs on your Windows 8 tablet. Many popular products like GarminPC, OziExplorer, Sygic Fleet, PC Navigator and many others require connection to a GPS device via a standard com port. The problem is that many tablets now feature GNSS devices, which provide location data via the Windows Location Platform. Unfortunately, they do not provide that data via a traditional com port, so most desktop apps simply will not work. That's where Localizer comes in.
Works directly with the GPS/GNSS sensor driver, bypassing the Windows Location platform entirely on Windows 8 standard (non WinRT) and Windows 7 operating systems.
Provides NMEA 0183 standard output directly from the chipset.
Provides the NMEA data to applications via a user-selectable virtual com port. It shows up in device manager and applications see it as a normal serial com port.
Full language support for the following:
- Chinese (Simplified)
All new Windows 8 "Modern" user interface
Updated user manual included with distribution
Displays live satellite data on Windows 8.1 with most drivers
Better auto-detect of GPS/GNSS Sensors
Now works correctly with Microsoft Streets & Trips 2013 and Delorme Street Atlas
UI is 100% touch-friendly.
Location data and NMEA output is displayed for easy validation of location platform availability and accuracy.
