  • Have you looked into creating a GPS sensor driver for your device?

  • This isn’t a scenario we targeted.  The option of last resort – is you write a custom driver, which isn’t an option for everyone, and even then it can only be accessed by one privileged app declared in device metadata.   A desktop app may be a better answer.

  • Is this an actual serial port or a USB serial port?

  • I think the gps device will use USB port on most laptops.
