Open Source .NET GPS Component

GPS.NET is a formerly commercial .NET component maintained by GeoFrameworks, LLC.

  • Automatic detection of serial GPS devices (or devices found via a virtual serial port).
  • Automatic detection of Bluetooth devices (when using the Microsoft Bluetooth stack.)
  • Support for newer devices using the QualComm GPS chipset (namely, HTC devices such as the TyTn II, P3300 and AT&T Tilt)
  • Automatic baud rate detection.
  • Automatic recovery of lost connections.
  • A single code base which supports .NET Framework 2.0/3.x and .NET Compact Framework 2.0/3.x.
  • Advanced GPS precision via Kalman filtering.
  • Support for desktops and mobile devices.
  • Support for the GPS Intermediate Driver on Windows Mobile 5.0+
  • Support for real-time GPS data without relying on Microsoft’s GPS API.
  • Support for control and monitoring of precision.
  • A set of animated gauge controls for desktops and mobile devices (Altimeter, Compass, Speedometer, SatelliteViewer, SatelliteSignalBar).

This library supports all .NET Frameworks from version 2.0 through 4.0 as well as .NET Compact Framework versions 2.0, and 3.5. Compiler directives are used to target source code for a particular platform (as opposed to having multiple code bases.)
