  • You should bring up a "stream driver" that supports two serial ports:

    1) 1st port ("application port") is required to serve NMEA requests from "maps application", thereby imitates real GPS/GLONASS-device

    2) via 2nd port you can provide a faked coordinate data to the driver;

  • You could try the install for Windows Mobile 5 or later.  You can't guarantee that it will work, unless you can actually find a Google Maps for Windows CE somewhere.  I've never seen that.

  • A lot of Chinese *Windows Mobile* devices come with it or a lot of *Windows CE* devices?  If the former, sure, no problem; there's a Windows Mobile version of Google Maps.  If the latter, I'm somewhat surprised.  It's quite possible to extract the contents of the CAB file, put them in your OS directly, making the correct shortcut entries and registry entries.  Maybe that will work; maybe it's a violation of the license agreement with Google.  Obviously, if you have some hot device that Google would want to be associated with, you can contact them and ask about the individual files needed to build it into a CE device.

    It is no problem to change "Platform" field by "WinCE CAB Manager" utility  and try to launch it again. But it becomes another problem with Win Mobile special DLL's, like "aygshell" (also presents in CE), "mfcce300", etc

    You don't need to install Google Maps to obtain GPS coordinates, just make a simple implementation of NMEA protocol with GPS module.

    Sorry, but it isn't clear "How i can give inputs to it" at all???

    Do you like to attach external gps device or to create gps-imitator driver?
