Localizer 5 Service

Localizer 5x windows service. Available in 1, 2 and 3 port versions. Runs automatically at startup without user intervention. No GUI.

Attention!  The hardware ID reported by Localizer 4 is NOT the same as the one reported by Localizer 5. Download and install Localizer 5 FIRST, before you create your license.

You MUST install Localizer 5 BEFORE you create your licenses in order to get the correct hardware ID.

 

Localizer 5 is now available as a standard windows service. Once installed and configured, it runs automatically at startup and provides the exact same data as the GUI version...but without the GUI.

The Localizer 5 service is available in 1, 2 and 3-port versions. Multiple versions, including the GUI version, can be run at the same time. Purchasers of the 1-port service or GUI version can use the same license file for both versions....two ports for the price of one!

Here's what changed from Localizer version 4 GUI:

  • Administrator privileges are no longer needed. Localizer runs as the current account.
  • All logging is done to the windows application event log
  • All port drivers are registered at startup
  • New installer package
  • Installer package, executable and main dlls are all digitally signed.
  • Updates are no longer automatic. Just click the "Check for updates" button
  • Localizer finds ALL GPS/GNSS sensors, regardless of manufacturer or model

Localizer 5 GUI and 1-port service is a FREE upgrade for all current Localizer 3x and 4x users!

Need more than 10 licenses?  Localizer 1, 2 and 3-port bulk service versions are available at discounted prices for purchases of 10 items or more. The "bulk service" versions provide convenient online activation and license control. You DO NOT need to provide individual hardware ids for each licensed tablet, Localizer takes care of that for you.  

Default com ports:

1-port: Com16

2-port: Com16,Com17

3-port: Com16,Com17,Com18

Config file is located at:

Localizer 5 service 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.

Features:

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.
  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
Location data and NMEA output is displayed for easy validation of location platform availability and accuracy.

Localizer 5x offers better stability, better performance, easier installation than previous versions. Not only that, but purchasers of the 1-port service or GUI version can use the same license file for both versions....two ports for the price of one!
