Component Adds Support for GPS Data in .NET

Scientific Component released GPS ToolKit.NET version 1.0, a native .NET-managed component for adding GPS support to any Visual Basic.NET, C#, or C++ project.

 GPS ToolKit.NET provides .NET software developers with an API that adds full support for reading real-time data from GPS units. It provides access to dozens of data sets, including position, speed, course, satellite, and navigation data, in a number of formats and units. Additionally, GPS ToolKit.NET raises events each time a new fix is received, or when navigation or satellite data is updated.

 GPS ToolKit.NET works with all types of GPS units, including RS232, USB, and Bluetooth, and can read from an unlimited number of GPS units simultaneously. The software also allows for playback of NMEA 0183 input files at various speeds, including real-time playback.

 GPS ToolKit.NET is a native .NET-managed component, and comes complete with six example applications in Visual Basic.NET, C#, and C++.

 GPS ToolKit.NET may be used royalty-free as part of an application. Further information and a free 30-day trial version are available at the company s Web site.
